Here‘s a nice book to complement #TheWomanOfTroublesomeCreekAnd #TheGiverOfStars
all three of these clips are about the packhorse librarians of Kentucky.
Interestingly in Louisiana librarians would deliver library books by flatboat.

//-You know what's really wonderful about those fireflies? Sure, they live for just a few weeks. Not much at all in the grand scheme of things. But while they're there, the beauty of them, well, it takes your breath away. You get to see the world in a whole new way. And then you have that beautiful picture burned onto the inside of your head. To carry it wherever you go. And never forget it-//

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek | Kim Michele Richardson
post image

Enjoyed #TheGiverOfStars so I think I‘ll read more about the WPA Pack Horse Librarians of Kentucky! 📚 🐴 📚

From Kim Michelle Richardson:

Scochrane26 I personally liked Book Woman better than giver of stars. It probably helps that I‘ve met the author a few times because she‘s from Ky. There was some controversy about how much alike some of the plot is to Giver (allegation that Moyes plagiarized). 1y
tpixie @Scochrane26 that‘s great you‘ve been able to meet the author. I‘ve just started, but enjoy the writing so far. Interesting.... 1y

Scochrane26 @tpixie I hadn‘t seen that article, it‘s interesting. I read this book for library book club when it first came out, & the author did a phone call with us. She talked some about her research. 14mo
tpixie @Scochrane26 I bet that was wonderful! 14mo
Sills Excited to read giver of stars. Wonder which book you will like better❤️@tpixie 14mo
tpixie @Sills giver of stars was great! This looks like it‘s going to be real good also! I think it‘s a win- win!! 14mo

Sometimes you read the perfect book at the perfect time, and that book shines a light on the hidden feelings within you that you haven‘t even really acknowledged or come to terms with. 2019 has been an emotional year for me, with the ending of my 10 year marriage, and the beginning of moving into a new and unknown chapter. This book captures so many of my feelings about marriage and relationships in ways I never knew how to put to words. 5 stars.

Louise It really is great when we find the perfect book right when we need it! Wishing you strength and joy, Vanessa, as you forge a new path forward. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 2y
Crazeedi Leaving is always hard, and I send my heartfelt prayer you find peace and a healing in the new year❤ 2y
YouReadMyEyes @Louise and @Crazeedi Thank you both for your kind words 😊 💛 2y

What are you reading this #Thanksgiving week? I'm halfway through and totally engrossed by #TheDeathandLifeoftheGreatLakes. #Nature is a powerful and awesome beast. Highly #recommend.

And I just began #TheBookWomanofTroublesomeCreek. Yes, I decidedly picked Richardson's tale over Moyes' #TheGiverofStars after hearing all the controversy. Who knows what really went down, but I know I'd rather support a fellow #Kentuckian at the end of the day.
