Join the CLS Book Club for a discussion of Kim Michele Richardson’s The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek highly anticipated sequel, The Book Woman’s Daughter. Although we will be looking at a sequel, you don’t have to read the first book to follow the story. Come ready to discuss and explore the themes of female independence, sisterhood, and justice in a morning jam-packed with a love for literature. All are welcome to participate in CLS Book Clubs, no matter your reading progress! We encourage all to attend, whether you’ve finished the book, are thinking about starting it, or couldn’t make it past the half-way point.
CLS Book Club is free, in-person, and open to the public. All that is required is an RSVP.

About the Book:
In the ruggedness of the beautiful Kentucky mountains, Honey Lovett has always known that the old ways can make a hard life harder. As the daughter of the famed, blue-skinned Troublesome Creek packhorse librarian, Honey, along with her family, has been hiding from the law all her life. But when her mother and father are imprisoned, Honey realizes she must fight to stay free, or risk being sent away for good.
Picking up her mother’s old packhorse library route, Honey begins to deliver books to the remote hollers of Appalachia. Honey is looking to prove that she doesn’t need anyone telling her how to survive. But the route can be treacherous, and some folks aren’t keen to let a woman pave her own way.
If Honey wants to bring the freedom books provide to the families who need it most, she’s going to have to fight for her place, and along the way, learn that the extraordinary women who run the hills and hollers can make all the difference in the world.
