Blood Meridian by Cormack McCarthy
Tuesday, September 21
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

An epic novel of the violence and depravity that attended America’s westward expansion, Blood Meridian brilliantly subverts the conventions of the Western novel and the mythology of the “wild west.”

Based on historical events that took place on the Texas-Mexico border in the 1850s, it traces the fortunes of the Kid, a fourteen-year-old Tennesseean who stumbles into the nightmarish world where Indians are being murdered and the market for their scalps is thriving.

Join us on September, 21st as we explore the novel with the Briscoe Book Club!

Available for purchase online at our Museum Store.
