The Alaska Talking Book Center has extended an invitation to out of state readers to their Virtual Alaska Story Hour for Adults. The story hour is regular, live readings of books that focus on Alaska. Although it is short notice, the next book will kick off on February 4th at 2:00 pm (MST). The book is titled, If You Lived Here, I’d Know Your Name, by Alaskan author Heather Lende. Sharing her experiences in Haines, Alaska, located ninety miles north of Juneau, Heather shares essays based on her obituaries and social columns in the local paper.
Heather will be joining in for the kick off, and may join the group from time to time during the live readings.
The Los Angeles Times said of the book, “Part Annie Dillard, part Anne Lamott, essayist and NPR commentator Heather Lende introduces readers to life in the town of Haines, Alaska . . . subtly reminding readers to embrace each day, each opportunity, each life that touches our own and to note the beauty of it all.”
This reading is free, but registration is required for access information. To find out more and to register, go to the Virtual Alaska Story Hour for Adults website. If you miss the kick off, you can join anytime.
