Please join us for Rotary Book Discussion Group for the discussion of the book “News of the World” by Paulette Jiles. The book is available at Rainy Day Books and the discussion will be led by Vivien Jennings.  All Rotarians and guests are welcome.


About the book:


Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd drifts through northern Texas, performing live readings from newspapers to paying audiences hungry for news of the world – of the Irish pouring into New York City, of the railroad driving into the new state of Nebraska.  An elderly widower who has lived through three wars and fought in two of them, the captain once made his living as a printer, until the War Between the States took his press and everything with it.  Now, at seventy-one, he enjoys the freedom of the road.
