Book Club for Jan. 9, 2021

We will be reading News of the World, A Novel, by Paulette Jiles.

Our meeting will be Saturday, Jan. 9 at 10am. Sharon Grimshaw is our host. Her address is 983 Bayou Lane in Crystal Beach. We will be meeting outdoors in her yard.

This will be a small-group meeting of 12 people. You must RSVP to attend. Wear a mask and bring your own outdoor chair and drink.

In the wake of the Civil War, Capt. Jefferson Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings from newspapers to audiences hungry for news of the world. He agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa tribe back to her people in this morally complex historical novel that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.
