NEW ALBANY

Author to sign books Saturday

Destinations Booksellers , 604 E. Spring St., New Albany, is sponsoring the only Southern Indiana appearance by K.B. Laugheed, author of the new historical novel, “The Spirit Keeper”

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.

Visit kblaugheed.com for more information on the author. For more information on the event, call Destinations Booksellers at 812-944-5116.
