Busy People Book Club

Welcome Busy People!!!

This book club is designed for busy people who don't have time to attend regular book club meetings.  The online book club will be run through Strathmore Municipal Library Facebook Group, Busy People Book Club, and moderated by staff members Olivia and Jennifer.  

June 2022 book is: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Richardson

Cussy Mary is a "Book Woman" — one of the Packhorse Librarians who delivered books to remote areas of the Appalachian Mountains during the Great Depression, from 1935 to 1943, as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration (WPA) program. Cussy Mary is also a "Blue" — the last of a line of blue-skinned people, whose skin appears the unusual shade due to a rare genetic disorder. As a Book Woman, Cussy Mary is highly regarded, but as a Blue, she is feared and reviled, and experiences racism, discrimination and violence.

The library strives to provide as many print copies of our monthly book club pick for our members.  If you are unable to pick up a copy in the library, you can access you book club pick several ways.
