In celebration of Alaska Book Week, please join local author Christine Byl for a free writing workshop, October 7, 7-8:30 pm. Christine will highlight some of her favorite Alaska authors (many of whose books are available at the library) and lead a craft discussion and exercise on writing about place. Free and open to all levels.
Christine Byl's first book, Dirt Work: An Education in the Woods was released in April 2013. Her prose also appears in The Sun, Glimmer Train, Crazyhorse, and other literary journals and anthologies. Byl is a two-time recipient of a Rasmuson Individual Artist Award as well as grants from the Alaska State Council on the Arts.
