Alaska Book Week 2013, Part 1

Alaska Book Week is October 5-12 this year. If you’ve been following me for a while, you may recall that we celebrate Alaskan authors that week. Bookstores, libraries, authors and others get together online and in person to find new favorite authors and talk about books.


Here are a few events highlighted on the Alaska Book Week website,


AQR (Alaska Quarterly Review) hosts a ABW kickoff and release of their newest issue at Tap Root in Anchorage: today, October 4, 7 pm


Barnes and Noble in Anchorage has an Alaskan Authors Showcase: Sunday, October 6, 1-6 pm

The Great Alaska Book Fair will host many authors at APU’s Carr-Gottstein Hall Saturday, October 12, 10 am to 5 pm

I’m especially excited abut the Great Alaska Book Fair because I’ll have a half-table there! It will be my debut author appearance. Fools Gold won’t be out until December, but I’ll pass out bookmarks and start getting the word out. Stop by if you’ll be in Anchorage Saturday! 🙂
