Book Discussion

Thursday July19th @ 7 p.m.

A book discussion group gives readers an opportunity to read something they might not have chosen themselves, and to share ideas with others in a friendly atmosphere. This month we are reading and discussing "News of the World" by  Paulette Jiles. In this simply written novel, we have a view of the Old West that many of us were unaware of...."In the wake of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings from newspapers to paying audiences hungry for news of the world." He is escorting a terrified little girl back to her family from Indian captivity Great story and a lot to talk about. Join us! Please note the change of date of this discussion!
