Join us at our Branch table(s) for lunch and to hear author Kim Michele Richardson as she discusses The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, the 2020 Roswell Reads book selection. Inspired by the true and historical blueskinned people of Kentucky and the brave and dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse library service, “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” showcases a first in literary novels – a bold and unique story about the Kentucky Blue people and Packhorse Librarians — a tale of fierce strength and one woman’s belief that books can carry us anywhere — even back home. Conveying a powerful message about how the written word affects people, the novel is a story of hope and heartbreak, raw courage and strength splintered with poverty and oppression, and one woman’s chances beyond the darkly hollows.

Our Monday night bookclub will discuss Richardson’s The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek at our February 24, 2020 meeting. The Friday morning bookclub will discuss The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek at our March 6, 2020 meeting.
