Library Book Discussion at the COA

News of the World 
by Paulette Jiles

Capt. Jefferson Kyle Kidd, an army veteran, makes his living in 1870 as a “reader” who travels around north Texas reading from various newspapers to a dime-a-head audience. A septuagenarian, he undertakes a 400-mile odyssey from Wichita Falls, TX, to San Antonio with a reluctant Johanna Leonberger, who has no memory of her life before she was kidnapped by the Kiowa Indians. Along the way, the ten-year-old warms up to the widowed captain as they face a number of perilous encounters.  – Library Journal
