9th Annual Washington County Read & Reception

News of the World

Thursday, October 19, 2017
Reception begins at 5:30 pm and the reading begins at 6:30 pm.

Please join us for the 8th Annual Washington County Read and reception – 
free and open to the public.
Join us and meet Paulette Jiles, author of News of the World, 
Lifetime Learning’s selection for the 2017 Washington County READ,
and hear a dramatic reading from her book.

About the Book:
1870, North Texas, rainy and cold. Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels from town to town giving readings from the latest newspapers, bringing the news of the world to isolated towns on the Texas frontier. In Wichita Falls, he is asked to return a captive girl to her relatives near San Antonio, 400 miles to the south. The old man and the ten-year-old start out on a hazardous journey, no less risky because the girl considers herself now a Kiowa and does not have the slightest desire to return. Bandits and Comanche raids and violent weather make as many difficulties as the ten-year old girl who can’t speak English, eats with her hands and knows how to use a revolver. In the end, he finds he must return her to relatives who don’t want her, even though he and the girl have become trusting friends. A story of courage and honor and the truth that these two things are often the possession of even the unlikeliest people.

About the Author:
Paulette Jiles is a novelist and poet. Her best-selling novels include Enemy WomenStormy Weather and The Color Of Lightning. She won Canada’s highest award for poetry, The Governor General’s Award. She graduated from the University of Missouri in Romance Languages. She lives near San Antonio, Texas. Agent is the superlative Liz Darhansoff.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

A Comedy by Barbara Robinson

Playing November 29 – December 3, 2017
(5 performances)

Directed by Jamie Ward

The Herdman children are the worst kids in the history of the world! They lie, steal, swear, smoke cigars, and cause trouble wherever they go. Every year the Sunday School students put on a Christmas pageant. But this year, bossy Mrs. Armstrong, the Christmas pageant’s director, breaks her leg. She can’t direct the pageant so Beth and Charlie Bradley’s mom becomes the director. Guess who comes to Sunday School the day Mrs. Bradley casts the show? All six Herdmans! And boy, do they change things! The fun begins and they turn the pageant upside down and inside out! But Mrs. Bradley is determined that the show will go on.
