Brown Book Club: “News of the World”
Aug 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

newsThe Brown Book Club will meet on Sunday, August 12 to discuss Paulette Jiles’ News of the World (fiction, 240 pp,  2016), a 2016 National Book Award finalist.  We’ll begin at 6PM with dinner, then go on to discussion.  Please RSVP by Friday, August 10 by contacting the event organizer, who will provide location information. Mention any food allergies, and bring $6 – $8 for the meal.

“In the aftermath of the Civil War, an aging itinerant news reader, Jefferson Kidd, agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa, Johanna, back to her people in this exquisitely rendered, morally complex, multilayered novel of historical fiction explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.” From Amazon: “This tale of these two making their way through perils both natural (swollen rivers) and human (hostile tribes and male predators) on the lengthy trip from Wichita Falls to San Antonio is completely absorbing.” “It’s short, perfectly paced and constructed, and chronicles Kidd’s journey with Johanna: both the physical voyage they make across the Texas landscape, and the obstacles they surmount together, and his internal journey, as he bonds with the young girl who begins to call him, alternatively, ‘Keh-pun’, or the Kiowa word for grandfather. When Kidd discovers her aunt and uncle have a reputation for using their young relatives as indentured servants and working them to the bone, the dilemma is even more dramatic. What can or should he do, when all he wants is a peaceful old age?”

Welcome to the Brown Community in DC!

Dear DC area Brunonians,

We are excited to be stepping into the leadership of the Brown Club of DC (BCDC). It is a privilege to be able to build upon the great legacy left to us by our predecessors and we look forward to continuing the legacy of service to this community and to Brown.

This organization exists to serve your needs and we take that responsibility seriously. We are hitting the ground running, with a variety of social, networking and service events planned for the summer. We hope that you will make time in your busy lives to participate in the activities that interest you.

We also recognize and appreciate the loyalty and enthusiasm of Brown alums all over the DC Metro area, and we want to provide opportunities for all of you to share your talents and interests with us. Many of our best events started as suggestions from alums just like you. Please connect with us at any of these activities, or contact us directly by email or social media if you have ideas or comments that you’d like to share regarding future events and initiatives.

We look forward to a year of fellowship, learning and fun!
