Kim Michele Richardson , the New York Times bestselling author of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, was our April “Bookaccino Live” Book Club guest. Kim Michele is a Kentuckian, who is proud to share her Kentucky heritage and that of those before her.

Inspired by both the true stories of the "blue people" of Kentucky, and the WPA’s Pack Horse Librarian Project, Kim Michele created the character of Cussy Mary Carter, a true Blue, who travels the hills of rural Kentucky bringing reading material to people who otherwise would not have access to them. While Cussy brings the joy of books to the hill folks of the Appalachia, she repeatedly confronts prejudice, which is often violent, because of her blue skin. Kim Michele also explains more about the blood disorder methemoglobinemia, which causes the appearance of blue-tinged skin.

With this opportunity to have a live book group discussion, Kim Michele dove deep into the book without the fear of spoiling anything. Stay tuned to hear the great questions from our readers, and know that if you've already read The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, there's plenty of background you will take away from this interview.
