All Book Up – September 

Book Woman of Troublesome Creek

Our new reading year will begin with Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson. Bluet is the last of the Kentucky Blues—real-life people born with blue skin in the dusty hills of Troublesome Creek. In 1936, nearly twenty years old and blue-skinned, Bluet has used up her last chance for “respectability” and a marriage bed. Instead, she joins the historical Pack Horse Library Project and becomes a librarian, riding up treacherous mountains on a mule to deliver books and other reading materials to the poor hill communities.

Along her dangerous route, Bluet confronts many who are distrustful of her blue skin. Not everyone is so keen on Bluet’s family or the library project, and the impoverished country folk are quick to blame a Blue for any trouble in their small town.

Inspired by the real and historical blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the dedicated Pack Horse library service, Kim Michele Richardson provides an authentic Appalachian voice to a story of hope and heartbreak, raw courage and strength, and one woman’s chances beyond the dark woods of Troublesome Creek.

Mesa Public Library has a book, both Hoopla ebooks and audio books, mp3 book, and the Kindle book.  Both the  Kindle and the book are available in the United Women in Faith library.  We’ll discuss the book on Wednesday, September 13 at 10 a.m.

Enjoy your summer reading!
