Rainy Day Books Book Club Discussion of News Of The World

EVENT OVERVIEW AND FORMAT:  Rainy Day Books will Present a Book Club Discussion of News Of The World by Paulette Jiles. Mary McBride, Bookseller will discuss News Of The World in detail with the Attendees.

ABOUT THE BOOK:   This short, powerful novel is historical fiction at its best! Captain Kidd, a 72-year-old war veteran and professional news reader, has been tasked with returning Johanna, a 10-year-old white girl kidnapped by the Kiowa when she was six and recently ransomed, to relatives living near San Antonio. The Captain knows the journey will not be easy but believes it is his duty to do the right thing, despite the dangers that lie ahead. What he doesn't expect is the strength of the bond that develops between him and Johanna, one so powerful that it defines the choice he makes at journey's end. Beautifully descriptive prose drives the narrative through the harsh and unforgiving landscape of the West during the late 1800s. News Of The World was a finalist for the National Book Award.
