Kim Michele Richardson New Book Launch
City Lights Bookstore will host Kim Michele Richardson to launch her new book on Saturday, May 4th at 6:30 p.m. The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is Richardson’s fourth novel and is set in 1930’s Kentucky. 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. Cussy isn’t just a librarian. She’s the last of her kind. Her skin is a shade of blue unlike most anyone else. Not everyone is keen on Cussy’s family for the Library Project and a Blue is often blamed for any whiff of trouble. If Cussy wants to bring the joy of books to the hill folks, she's going to have to confront prejudice as old as the Appalachian mountains and suspicion as deep as the holler.
