That Book Woman
World Premiere! A Kentucky Voices Original!
Adapted by Holly Hepp-Galvan
From the classic picture book by Heather Henson
High in the hills of Kentucky, everybody’s talking about the lady who rides straight up the mountainside on horseback braving all kinds of weather as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new-fangled Pack Horse Library project. Crazy risking life and limb just for a bunch of books, some say. And yet, what the rider brings, week after week, is more than stories tucked inside her saddlebags; what that Book Woman brings to the people of Appalachia is a new sense of wonder and pride, a new kind of hope. A heartfelt, uplifting celebration of a beloved piece of Kentucky history for the whole family to enjoy. All ages.
