Several UAF departments joined the University of Alaska Press in celebrating Alaska Book Week 2012. Students, faculty, and community members stopped by more than a dozen tables to talk with programs such as Alaska SeaGrant, the Alaska Native Language Center, and the Elmer E. Rasmuson and BioSciences Libriaries and to buy books from a wide they had available for purchase.
Morning readings featured Cam Esslemont, Peggy Shumaker, Sean Hill, Derick Burleson, Gerri Brightwell, and Carol Kaynor. After a break, they switched to an open mic format that kept people reading into the early afternoon--we hear that a lot of enthusiastic readers and their friends participated!
Once again we extend our thanks to University of Alaska Press for their generous sponsorship of Alaska Book Week.
