News of the World: Monday, August 21 • 6:00 pm
The Civil War is over, and Captain and widower Jefferson Kyle Kidd makes ends meet by giving live readings of various newspapers. A $50 gold piece convinces Captain Kidd to transport a young woman, who was raised among Kiowa raiders after her parents’ death, to the home of relatives in San Antonio. As the journey continues, the pair become closer, and when they finally arrive in San Antonio, Capt. Kidd must make the hardest decision of his life. Poet and novelist Paulette Jiles’ latest book is a brilliant work of historical fiction that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor and trust.
Meets in the Armstrong Conference Room.
