Hear author, teacher, literary specialist, Katherine Schlick Noe, speak about her book, the process of writing it, and her inspirational, cultural experience of living on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in central Oregon. About the book:

It’s 1962 and Kitty has just turned eleven when Dad’s government job moves the family all the way across the country to the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in Oregon. She knows how to be “the new kid,” but it’s a whole new kind of starting over this time.

At first the Indian kids are standoffish, even hostile. Despite her discomfort, Kitty notices how some white people, including the teachers, treat them with casual contempt. As she gets to know her classmates and to glimpse their rich heritage, Kitty comes to respect their strength and generosity that some around her ignore.

Friendships and allegiances, mischief, baseball, mourning, humiliation, the courage to speak out against injustice—all are woven into Kitty’s growing season at Warm Springs.

“Kitty’s discoveries and ethical dilemmas are age-and era-appropriate,
the characters affectionately portrayed, rounded individuals.” – Kirkus
