Tag Archives: Library Card Sign-up Month
#BookFaceFriday “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” by Kim Michele Richardson
Having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a Library Card!
We are all about celebrating libraries and everything they can do for a community, but the first step in accessing all of their amazing services is getting yourself a library card. With that in mind, this #BookFaceFriday we wanted to help get the word out about September as National Library Card Sign-up Month! “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek: A Novel” by Kim Michele Richardson (Sourcebooks Landmark, 2019) is available as an eBook and an Audiobook at Nebraska OverDrive Libraries in the Carpe Librum (Seize the Book) collection celebrating Library Card Sign-up Month. It’s an entire collection of stories about books, libraries, and librarians. “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” is also available as an NLC book club kit to any library or school book club!
“This gem of a historical from Richardson (The Sisters of Glass Ferry) features an indomitable heroine navigating a community steeped in racial intolerance. In 1936, 19-year-old Cussy Mary Carter works for the New Deal-funded Pack Horse Library Project, delivering reading material to the rural people of Kentucky…Readers will adore the memorable Cussy and appreciate Richardson’s fine rendering of rural Kentucky life.”
