Join us for a discussion of True Grit by Charles Portis. In the 1870's, young Mattie Ross learns that her beloved father was gunned down by his former handyman. But even though this gutsy 14-year-old is seeking vengeance, she is smart enough to figure out she can't go alone after a desperado who is holed up in Indian territory. With some fast talking, she convinces mean, one-eyed Marshal "Rooster" Cogburn into going after the despicable outlaw with her.
