The Countdown Begins!

Alaska Book Week 2013 begins October 5th, just one muddy breakup and a short Alaskan summer away. 49 Writers wants to extend this opportunity to celebrate Alaska’s talent and literary tradition. That’s why we are excited to start the countdown to Alaska Book Week early this year.
If you’re new to this celebration, here’s how it works: during Alaska Book Week, libraries, booksellers, publishers, educators, and schools statewide honor Alaska's authors and books with  displays, author visits, book club events, press, and more. Communities throughout the state are encouraged to come up with their own unique events to be shared on the Alaska Book Week website.
We know this year can be bigger and better than ever with your participation. Please share your ideas for Alaska Book Week 2013 here.
