Read2Reel: All the Pretty Horses

Read2Reel is our book club for movie lovers … or is it a movie club for book lovers? Whichever it is, it’s definitely a good time! Once a month, join us at 5:30pm to discuss the book or at 6:00pm to watch the film (or both). This month’s meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 30, and the selection is All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy. Multiple copies of the book are available here at the library for checkout.

Can’t make it this month? May’s selection is The Good German by Joseph Kanon.

About the book:

The national bestseller and the first volume in Cormac McCarthy’s Border Trilogy, All the Pretty Horses is the tale of John Grady Cole, who at sixteen finds himself at the end of a long line of Texas ranchers, cut off from the only life he has ever imagined for himself.  With two companions, he sets off for Mexico on a sometimes idyllic, sometimes comic journey to a place where dreams are paid for in blood.  Winner of the National Book Award for Fiction.
