Briscoe Book Club: 'Empire of the Summer Moon' SC Gwynne
Presented by Briscoe Western Art Museum
November 4, 2014
Join us the first Tuesday of every month for a lively discussion of great works of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction inspired by the vast and varied experiences of the American West.
Stunningly vivid, Empire of the Summer Moon is the provocative historical account of two astonishing stories: the rise and fall of the Comanche Nation alongside the narrative of Cynthia Ann Parker, an abductee of the Comanche tribe at age nine and mother of the Comanche’s greatest chief, Quanah Parker.This book was chosen in conjunction with Native American Heritage Month and author S.C. Gwynne’s presentation at the Briscoe Museum’s Distinguished Lecture Series on Thursday, November 6.
