Free Book of the Month: June

The calendar has flipped, and June 1st is here bringing with it a new Free Book of the Month from UPK! This month, delve into the writings of one of Kentucky’s most beloved authors, Janice Holt Giles.

The last book Giles published before her death in 1979, Wellspring brings together Giles’s fiction, nonfiction, autobiography, and fictionalized autobiography to reveal a behind-the-scenes look at her life, her family, her love for her adopted state of Kentucky and its people, her politics, her favorite authors, her thoughts on writing, and her views of her own work.

“Any writer who makes her readers laugh, cry, wring their hands, question their own ingrained attitudes and stay up all night so as not to have to leave the world she draws them into, has accomplished what she set out to do, and Giles admirably succeeds.”–Lexington Herald-Leader
