Wed, 10/26/2011 - 10:00am

MOBILE, Ala. – The Friends of the Spring Hill College Library will host “A Conversation with Robert Day,” author of “The Strong Current: Book One: Attaugee” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10 at Stewartfield on the Spring Hill College campus.

“The Strong Current: Book One: Attaugee” is the story of Otci, a rising youth in the village of Attaugee in the great Muskogee nation who knew that the rites of initiation to warriorhood and manhood would demand the best of mind, body and spirit. But what he didn't know was how quickly the tensions mounting in the nation would bring the ultimate conflict, and challenge him to his very core. Otci and his brother initiates are trained by a master legend-giver for the ceremony that marks their transition. He is assisted by Pakahle, a beautiful and insightful attendant. With a new name given at the Green Corn Festival from his visions, he inherits a position of power among Attaugee, and soon the nation's warriors.

Refreshments will follow. Admission is free for Friends of The SHC Library members. A $5 donation is recommended. For additional information, contact Tracy Parman at 251-380-2273 or tparman@shc.edu.
