Tales of the City: Writing from Alaska’s Urban Hubs

Modern Alaska life exists in the dichotomy between what some call the Great Land—majestic lands teeming with wildlife—and the goings-on of our mostly urban people. How does this dichotomy affect urban Alaskans and the stories they tell?

Join editors Martha Amore and Lucian Childs, along with contributor Indra Arriaga in a discussion moderated by Heather Brook Adams.

Building Fires in the Snow is a pathbreaking anthology that opens a window onto the diverse lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Alaskans. 

A question and answer session and book signing will follow. 

Free for 49 Writers members | $5 suggested donation for nonmembers. Memberships available on site.
