Join UAA’s acclaimed Alaska Quarterly Review for two special free 30th Anniversary events to kick off Alaska Book Week:
On Thursday, October 4, at 7PM the "THE STONE OF HEAVEN: Alaska Quarterly Review 30th Anniversary Poems" will be presented in the Loussac Library's Wilda Marston Theater. This reading from AQR's milestone 30th Anniversary fall and winter 2012 edition features the best in contemporary poetry.
And on Friday, October 5, from 5:30 to 7PM in both of APU's Art Galleries is the opening reception for the extraordinary "LIBERTY & JUSTICE FOR ALL" exhibition. The exhibit features the photography and narratives of 68 of the world's best photojournalists from 23 nations. The publication in spring and summer 2012 was acclaimed by the National Endowment for the Arts and this event is Alaska's premiere of the exhibition just returned from presentation at the Frontline Club in London, UK and exhibition for more than two months at the FOVEA EXHIBITION gallery in Beacon, NY and for a month at the VII Gallery in New York City with coverage in the TIME magazine Tumblr and The New York Times. The VII Gallery opening panel discussion was also made into a public television program and broadcast statewide in Alaska on September 8-10.
Admission is free for both events.
