Big Library Read: Flat Broke with Two Goats

Big Library Read: Flat Broke with Two Goats

From April 2-16, OverDrive's Big Library Read is back with the eBook and eAudio formats of Flat Broke With Two Goats, by Jennifer McGaha.

Suburban Chic to Backwoods Barnyard

When Jennifer discovered that she and her husband owed back taxes—a lot of back taxes—her world changed. Now desperate to save money, they gave up their beloved suburban home and moved their family to a 100-year-old cabin in a North Carolina holler. Soon enough, Jennifer’s life began to more closely resemble her Appalachian ancestors than her upper-middle-class upbringing. But what started as a last-ditch effort to settle debts became a journey that revealed both the joys and challenges of living close to the land.

Easy Reading

During the Big Library Read, the digital version and audiobook will be available to all library customers to download for free, with no need to be on a waitlist. Flat Broke With Two Goats can be read on major computers and devices. Like all of our eBooks and eAudios, it will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there will not be any late fees. 

Making It Social

Author and university professor Jennifer McGaha loves reading and libraries, and she's written a friendly letter of introduction for Big Library Read participants.
