Fiction Book Discussion:
The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek
Tuesday July 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Book Woman of Troublesome Creek

Join us for our virtual book discussion of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, by Kim Michele Richardson. In 1936, tucked deep into the woods of Troublesome Creek, KY, lives blue-skinned 19-year-old Cussy Carter, the last living female of the rare Blue People ancestry. The lonely young Appalachian woman joins the historical Pack Horse Library Project of Kentucky and becomes a librarian, riding across slippery creek beds and up treacherous mountains on her faithful mule to deliver books and other reading material to the impoverished hill people of Eastern Kentucky.

Copies are available on Overdrive and Hoopla.
