While much of Adair County was eagerly awaiting 2006 election results, about 25 members of the Lindsey Wilson College community welcomed Kentucky author Kay Gill for a reading from her debut novel, Mirel's Daughter, in W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall.

In addition to reading several excerpts from her novel, Gill explained how she came to write it. The novel is based on the life of Gill's late mother, who emigrated from the Ukraine to America following World War I.
