The Giver of Stars


Couldn’t have loved it more!! A book about books and people who love books is the book for me!! Add in the themes of friendship ‘all of us at the library’, community ‘people of the mountain..knew how to look after their own’ and I am there!! Absolutely loved it!! There’s also the gift of literacy, racism, poverty and misogyny so it’s the complete package! The scenery is so beautiful, and just adds so much to the story. Such a great book full of characters you love and characters that you love to hate! A mule named charley and a dog named bluey just right round out this book about the WPA Horseback Librarian Program that has never run so successfully as it did in Kentucky in the 30s. Such a great book
