Paulette Jiles, author of ‘Simon The Fiddler’ “sparse but lyrical writing is a joy to read…It’s a beautifully written book and a worthy follow-up to News of the World. That novel is due in theaters, starring Tom Hanks, December 2020. Until then, lose yourself in this entertaining tale.” ABC News (online)

From the Author’s website: ‘You remember Simon the fiddler from News of the World.  He was playing in  Spanish Fort when the Captain arrived with Johanna. You remember the love of his life Doris Dillon. This is the story of how they met, how Simon survived the last battle of the Civil War and how they lived through his own terrible mistakes and the chaos of Texas under Reconstruction.

Join us as we explore this ‘story of music and what those who create music must endure in a rough-and-tumble world.’

Assistance League of San Antonio is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that serves San Antonio area residents through its eight philanthropic programs. You can learn more about us and our programs at www.assistanceleague.org/san-antonio.
