The 2017 pick is the historical fiction novel News of the World by Paulette Jiles.

On Saturday, October 7, join us to hear actual news from that time period from a library crier! All articles thanks to the Portal to Texas History.

News of the 1870s World will take place in the library lobby on Saturday, October 7th starting at 2:00 pm.
