Assistance League of San Antonio presents
Paulette Jiles, author of ‘Simon The Fiddler’
and ‘News of The World’
Purchase of these books would be a wonderful gift!
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.’
