The Mystery Book Club has chosen The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly for their next meeting, Thursday, December 17th at 12 PM (Noon) via Zoom. All are welcome to join us. Please email us at email@example.com and we will email you a Zoom invite.Jaded attorney Mickey Haller takes on his first high-paying and possibly innocent client in years, but finds the case complicated by an evil perpetrator.
For December we will be reading and discussing The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson. Contact the library to sign up for this group.
"Cussy Mary Carter is the last of her kind, her skin the color of a blue damselfly in these dusty hills. But that doesn't mean she's got nothing to offer. As a member of the Pack Horse Library Project, Cussy delivers books to the hill folk of Troublesome, hoping to spread learning in these desperate times. But not everyone is so keen on Cussy's family or the Library Project, and the hardscrabble Kentuckians are quick to blame a Blue for any trouble in their small town. The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's determination to bring a little bit of hope to the darkly hollers"
