Book Club members met to discuss their June read, “News of the World” by Paulette Jiles, which was voted Texas’ Great Read of 2017 at the National Book Festival. Members of the book club agreed this is a must read. Thanks goes to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) for sending us copies of the special newspaper pamphlet that promotes and highlights this book.
Come read it for yourself, we have extra pamphlets too!
