The Regulator welcomes NYTimes bestselling author — and FORMER REGULATOR STAFFER! — Emily Colin («The Memory Thief») for a reading and signing of her new book, «The Dream Keeper’s Daughter,» about an extraordinary time-bending journey from present-day South Carolina to historical 19th-century Barbados.

Eight years after the unsolved disappearance of her boyfriend Max Adair, archaeologist Isabel Griffin has managed to rebuild with her young daughter, Finn — her last tie to Max. But after a series of strange incidents, Isabel begins to wonder if Max might still be alive somewhere, trying to communicate with her. Max has slipped through time and place, landing on his ancestral family plantation in 1816 Barbados, on the eve of a historic slave uprising. As Isabel searches for answers, Max must figure out not only how to survive the violence to come, but how to get back to his own century, the woman he loves, and the daughter he has only met in his dreams.

“Colin is an author to watch and savor.” –Booklist

EMILY COLIN'S debut novel, «The Memory Thief,» has been a New York Times bestseller and a Target Emerging Authors Pick. Colin’s diverse life experience includes selling books at The Regulator Bookshop, organizing a Coney Island tattoo and piercing show, hauling fish at the Dolphin Research Center in the Florida Keys, roaming New York City as an itinerant teenage violinist, helping launch two small publishing companies, and serving as the associate director of DREAMS of Wilmington, a nonprofit dedicated to immersing youth in need in the arts. Originally from Brooklyn, she lives in Wilmington with her family.
