Retired Pioneer Kate Peters speaks at the Dies Librorum celebration of books in Salida, Colorado.

Tucked into the Rockies, pressed against historic gold mining sights, one finds several charming old towns. Salida is a town that caters to art-loving patrons from Colorado Springs, and other cities in the Southwest. Lisa Marvel, owner of The Book Haven, is an independent bookseller who does a bang-up job for local bibliophiles by hosting a monthly book signing event at her charming establishment.

Since Atwood is somewhat of a recluse, her mother has assumed the responsibilities of public speaking on behalf of their literary joint venture. Her background in performing arts together with her first-hand knowledge of pioneering, make Kate, now a retired Alaskan pioneer, a natural choice to be the public voice for Sleeping Moose Saga.

So far, Kate has spoken twice at the Book Haven for their Dies Librorum event, and once in Manitou Springs with the nationally-acclaimed “Story Project.” She has also been a guest on local KCME radio, 88.7 FM, where cultural arts of the Pikes Peak area are discussed weekly.

To schedule a school, library or bookstore event  with Kate Peters, please contact her and she will try to oblige.
