Super Adults Book Study “News of the World”

March 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

Now it’s a movie, but before that it was an excellent book, News of the World, by Paulette Jiles. This beautifully written novel, set in 1870, is the story of a somewhat embittered 71-year-old Captain Kidd who travels through Texas after the Civil War, reading the news of the world to those who have no access to newspapers. He is con-fronted with the need to return a 10 year old girl to her family. Johanna was kidnapped from her family by a band of Kiowa Indians when she was an infant. Now, the Kiowa want to return her, but she knows no other life. The 400 mile journey from Wichita Falls to Castroville is dangerous, but the captain and the young girl forge a bond that is the difference between life and death.
