Storytelling around the book:

“That Book Woman” by Heather Henson & David Small

Friday, April 23rd at 18 h. – English version (All in English)

“Cal is not the readin’ type. Living way high up in the Appalachian Mountains, he’d rather help Pap plow or go out after wandering sheep than try some book learning. Nope. Cal does not want to sit stoney-still reading some chicken scratch. But that Book Woman keeps coming just the same. She comes in the rain. She comes in the snow. She comes right up the side of the mountain, and Cal knows that’s not easy riding. And all just to lend his sister some books. Why, that woman must be plain foolish — or is she braver than he ever thought?.”

From Simon and Schuster.

“That book woman” by Heather Henson and pictures by David Small

“Heather Henson’s That Book Woman brings to life the story of the book women, more formally known as Pack Horse Librarians, one of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration programs of the 1930s. Her writing style is graceful and measured, and placing the narrative in Cal’s vernacular gives the story a weight and emotional resonance that really sticks with readers, bringing them along with him as he discovers more than chicken scratch in those books.”
