Our next book is The Collected Works of Billy the Kid by Michael Ondaatje

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The English Patient comes a visionary novel, a virtuoso synthesis of storytelling, history, and myth, about William Bonney, a.k.a. "Billy the Kid, " a bloodthirsty ogre and outlaw saint.

A major gear shift after Infinite Jest, Ondaatje's volume combines photography, historical documents and poetry.

Come discuss The Collected Works of Billy the Kid Saturday May 15th at the Main Library in the 3rd Floor Program Room at 11am. Feel free to bring food and drink.
