Now meeting at both 11:00am and 5:30pm!
Join the Broad Street Readers on Tuesday September 24th to discuss Paulette Jiles’ News of the World, an adventure story set in the aftermath of the Civil War that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.
News of the World is an adventure story, filled with danger and incident; a western, meticulously researched and rendered; and a two hundred-page prose poem with poetry’s usual virtues of compression, resonance, beauty, and power. Set in post-Civil War Texas, the chaos of that place and time are vividly depicted, even as the story remains primarily one of character. Paulette Jiles has shown how rich and deeply imagined the historical novel can be. ~ Judge’s citation from the National Book Awards 2016
