Mary Robinette Kowal signs in San Diego

Event date: 
Thursday, November 10, 2016 - 7:30pm

Author and puppeteer Mary Robinette Kowal creates an alternate history where the Spirit Corps, a group that communicates with recently killed soldiers to gather important wartime information, make an important contribution to World War I. Medium Ginger Stuyvesant, an American heiress living in London during World War I, is engaged to Captain Benjamin Harford, an intelligence officer. When Ben is called away and Ginger discovers a traitor in the Allies camp, she must call upon all her resources to defend the Spirit Corps. Publishers Weekly noted, “Her depiction of the Western Front includes diverse characters often neglected in wartime stories: the many people who help Ginger include women young and old, people of color, and disabled veterans, all of whom are dismissed by the British men in charge.”
