Library Local News Things To Do

Canyon Lake Reads Runs Through March

Will Dupuy and the Wilderness perform post-Civil War songs, songs of Texas and more at Tye Preston Memorial Library's Canyon Lake Reads community event, which is themed around the novel News of the World by Paulette Jiles.

Friends of Tye Preston Memorial Library sponsors Canyon Lake Reads, a month of Texas-themed events including campfire stories, a musical performance, a trip to the Bob Bullock Museum, square dancing and a barbecue dinner.

The month-long program centers around News of the World, by Paulette Jiles. In the novel, an aging itinerant news reader agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa back to her people. The book explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor and trust.
