Darci, Head of Technical Services, really enjoyed The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson. This 2019 title is an Indie Next Pick and one of Oprah's Buzziest Book Picks for May.
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, one of the last blue-skinned people of Kentucky.
Inspired by the true blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the brave and dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse library service of the 1930s, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's belief that books can carry us anywhere―even back home.
