The hardscrabble folks of Troublesome Creek have to scrap for everything—everything except books, that is. Thanks to Roosevelt's Kentucky Pack Horse Library Project, Troublesome's got its very own traveling librarian, Cussy Mary Carter.

Cussy's not only a book woman, however, she's also the last of her kind, her skin a shade of blue unlike most anyone else. Not everyone is keen on Cussy's family or the Library Project, and a Blue is often blamed for any whiff of trouble. If Cussy wants to bring the joy of books to the hill folks, she's going to have to confront prejudice as old as the Appalachias and suspicion as deep as the holler.

Join us for a virtual discussion of THE BOOK WOMAN OF TROUBLESOME CREEK by Kim Michele Richardson. Books are available at the East Longmeadow Library. Call us at 525-5400 to arrange for a curbside pickup. This book may also be available as an ebook or audiobook in the OverDrive Digital Catalog.

Register for this program and a link to join the discussion will be emailed to you.
