6:00 PM, Arcata Library's A Novel Idea Book Group, 'The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek'

Thursday, February 25, 2021

This story--rooted in historical fact--about the Blue People of rural Kentucky and the Depression-era Pack Horse Library Project will touch your heart and convince you of the power of literacy over bigotry, hatred and fear. Troublesome Creek's traveling librarian is the courageous Cussy Mary Carter, and her fierce faith that books can carry us anywhere transforms her community and herself.
