Register for the virtual author event with Kim Michele Richardson on Wednesday, May 27th at 6 PM.

Join Seekonk library’s virtual book club!  We will be reading The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson, available as an ebook and audiobook from Hoopla.  This book tells the story of Cussy Mary Carter, a pack horse librarian bringing books to the mountain folk of Appalachia during the Depression.  She is also the last of the blue folk of Kentucky, having inherited a rare genetic trait that gives her skin a blue tinge.  She must confront prejudice, superstition and backward thinking in her quest to bring hope in the form of books to the hill people.  

Discussion questions will be posted on the library’s Facebook page or sent by email starting the week of May 11th.  Email Katie at if you would like discussion questions emailed to you.  Happy reading!
