Author Talk: Kim Michele Richardson author of Book Woman of Troublesome Creek (virtual event)

October 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Online

Join us for a virtual meet up and discussion with Kim Michele Richardson, author of breakout bestseller The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek.  This fascinating historic novel tells about a lesser known subject, the librarians of Kentucky who brought books and literacy to the Appalachian hill people by horseback, in the 1930s.  This fourth novel of Richardson’s is considered one of the most original and unusual contributions to literature of the American South.  Let’s hear her inspirations, her research, and what she left out of the story that she wished stayed in.
