A Community Tells Its Story

Join editors Martha Amore and Lucian Childs, along with contributors Susanna Mishler, Shelby MahoganyEvolving Wilson, and Mei Mei Evans, as they share their work and discuss the process of writing about the Alaska LGBTQ community.

Building Fires in the Snow: A Collection of Alaska LGBTQ Short Fiction and Poetry is a pathbreaking book featuring work from some of Alaska’s finest writers. How does the anthology reveal different aspects of the Alaska LGBTQ community? How can collaborative projects such as Building Fires in the Snow or Arctic Entries open windows onto little-seen aspects of our state? Can literature empower a community or does it stand outside political and social movements?

A Question and Answer session and book signing will follow.
