Please join us for a reading and signing with K.B. Laugheed for The Spirit Keeper Wed, Oct 23, 6pm at Subterranean Books **See the trailer here** “This is the account of Katie O’Toole, late of Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, removed from her family by savages on March the 2nd in the year of our Lord 1747.” On the day of a brutal savage attack on her frontier home, seventeen-year-old Katie is saved from certain death by two strange Indian men who insist she is the subject of a Holyman’s Vision–the Creature of Fire and Ice destined to bring a great gift to their people. Katie dismisses this wild story as superstitious nonsense but decides to play along rather than return to her abusive family of Irish immigrants. Only then does she discover that in order to fulfill the Holyman’s Vision, she must first become something they call his “Spirit Keeper,” a step which sends her on an epic journey across a continent unknown to the Western world, spending a great deal of time on the Misoouri River. K.B. Laugheed grew up in the shadow of the site of the 1812 Battle of Tippecanoe. She is an organic gardener and master naturalist who has spent a lifetime feeding the earth, and her efforts have culminated in The Spirit Keeper, her first novel and largest contribution to the potluck so far. Copies of The Spirit Keeper will be available for purchase and signing at the event. If you are unable to attend the event but would like a signed copy just let us know!
