Author to sign books Saturday

Laugheed will be available to sign copies of her book at the store from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 26.
“The Spirit Keeper” is a captivity narrative which begins in 1747 when a 17-year-old girl is removed from her frontier Pennsylvania home during an Indian massacre. As the terrified captive’s fate unfolds in the rich setting of an unexplored America, the novel becomes a great adventure, an irresistible romance and a poignant account of the universal struggle for understanding, which is why there’s something for everyone in this book.
