During the month of October, libraries in the upper Texas Gulf Coast region celebrate Gulf Coast Reads, an initiative that focuses on bringing communities together through reading and discussing one pre-selected book. The 2017 pick is the historical fiction novel News of the World by Paulette Jiles.

In News of the World, the main character, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, travels across Texas in 1870, reading newspapers from around the country to people in remote locations. 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.
