News of the World (Greenwich Town Reads)

by Paulette Jiles

Friday, September 8, 2017

It is 1870 and Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings to paying audiences hungry for news of the world. In Wichita Falls, he is offered a $50 gold piece to deliver a young orphan to her relatives in San Antonio. Exquisitely rendered and morally complex, News Of The World is a work of historical fiction that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.
