Location: Bernice Nailen Memorial Library
Description: This daytime group reads and discusses books recommended by the UWIF. Open to all who enjoy reading!
On Monday, February 20, at 1:30 pm the group will discuss Kim Michele Richardson’s book The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek. Inspired by the true blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse library service of the 1930s, this best-selling historical novel follows packhorse librarian Cussy Mary Carter and her quest to bring books to Troublesome Creek. The last of her kind, her skin a shade of blue unlike most anyone else, Cussy has to confront prejudice as old as the Appalachians and suspicion as deep as the holler to bring the joy of books to the hill folks. This is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman’s belief that books can carry us anywhere—even back home. The group meets in The Bernice Nailen Memorial Library. All are welcome.
