On December 4, 2014 The Homesman by Glendon Swarhout will be discussed. Anyone interested in joining the discussion is welcome! Meet at 7pm at the Pioneer Bookshop.
In an unprecedented sweep, Glendon Swarthout’s novel won both the
Western Writers of America’s Spur Award and the Western Heritage
Wrangler Award. A new afterword by the author’s son Miles Swarthout
tells of his parents Glendon and Kathryn’s discovery of and research
into the lives of the oft-forgotten frontier women who make The Homesman as moving and believable as it is unforgettable.
