Afternoon Open Book Club (Leaving Cheyenne by Larry McMurtry)

March 16, 2016 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The “Open Afternoon Book Club” meets in the Story Garden every third Wednesday at 1:00 pm.  For March, this group has selected Larry McMurtry’s Leaving Cheyenne.

Leaving Cheyenne traces the loves of three West Texas characters as they follow that sundown trail: Gideon Fry, the serious rancher; Johnny McCloud, the free-spirited cowhand; and Molly Taylor, the sensitive woman they both love and who bears them each a son. Told in alternating perspectives over sixty years, Leaving Cheyenne follows their dreams, secrets, and grief against a changing American landscape.

Tragic circumstances mark the trail, but fans of McMurtry’s distinctive style will cherish his unforgettable characters and pathos of the American West.

Book clubs at the Cazenovia Public Library are free and open to the public.  Books are available at the circulation desk, and all are welcome.
