Event description

Description

RSVP APPRECIATED BUT NOT NECESSARY

Katie O'Toole's epic adventure began in The Spirit Keeper (Plume 2013) when she was rescued from a 1747 frontier massacre in Pennsylvania only to find herself chosen as the "Spirit Keeper" of a dying Indian Seer. She hesitated to accept this mysterious obligation until she fell in love with the Seer's bodyguard, an Indian man she called Hector.

In The Gift of the Seer, Katie and Hector continue their journey across the continent, but the more Katie learns about the peculiar ways of her husband's people, the more she dreads arriving at their destination. Will anyone believe she is the Spirit Keeper she pretends to be? Equally troubling, Katie knows the Seer expected her to prove his Vision--a Vision which foretold of infinite Invaders coming to his world--but to prove this prophecy, she must give his people the great Gift he also predicted. The only problem is that Katie has no Gift to give.

Years pass as she desperately searches for a way to fulfill her promise to the dead Seer, but when his former rival threatens to expose her as a fraud, Katie finally understands that her life and the lives of all the people in her new world hang in the balance. That's when she knows she must give a Gift--she must--before it is too late.

Having grown up in the shadow of the site of the 1811 Battle of Tippecanoe, K.B. Laugheed received an MA in English from the University of Dayton, with a concentration on Native American literature. She taught writing at Ivy Tech for twelve years and worked as a writer/editor at a small-town newspaper for twenty-three years. Throughout both careers, she worked as a freelance writer, publishing numerous articles in national periodicals, and she also wrote and directed a series of plays for community theater. She published her debut novel, The Spirit Keeper, in 2013, and the sequel, The Gift of the Seer in 2018. Laugheed is an organic gardener, a master naturalist, and an ardent spokesperson for the planet Earth. She belongs to far too many cats.
