Not Just About A Book Club Reads "The Giver of Stars"

On this day,  May 28, 2020 we are still in the shelter in place covid 19 shut down.  So our book club met virtually via a Zoom meeting for the third time. 

The book that our club member Karen selected "The Giver of Stars" was written by JoJo Moyes. 
The book takes place during the depression years in America's poverty stricken rural areas of Kentucky. This historical novel centers on the true life WPA( World Progress Administration) Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky reading/library lending program set up under President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The book's central focus is on the five female Librarians who rode on horseback to remote areas to deliver books to impoverished families. Everyone in our book club really liked this book. It is a novel about women's friendships, relationships in marriage, the value of books and women who refused to be cowered by circumstances, men or by convention. "The Giver of Stars" most certainly earned thumbs up by everyone in our book club.
