Events & Resources

Alaska kidlit authors have a holiday table at the Anchorage Nordstrom every Saturday in December! I’ll be there on December 15, 11:00-4:00. Stop by and say hi!


Join us for the SCBWI-Alaska Book Fair! It’s at the Anchorage Barnes and Noble from 1:00 to 8:00 pm on November 28, 2018. We’ll have Alaskan kidlit and YA authors and book signings, a scavenger hunt, and fun writing activities for all ages!   

It’s a great time to take care of holiday shopping, and most items in the store count, including not only books, but also toys, music, and even goodies from the café. Online orders placed from 11/28 to 12/2 also count; enter Bookfair ID#12445631 at checkout.
