Great Alaska Book Fair and Barnes and Noble Partnership


Great Alaska Book Fair

We are excited to announce that the Great Alaska Book Fair will take place Saturday, October 11 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Loussac Library in the Lower Level. The Great Alaska Book Fair is sponsored by a coalition of Alaska Writer's Guild, the Loussac Library, Alaska Pacific Univeristy, and 49 Writers. All Alaska-based authors are encouraged to sign up at http://www.alaskawritersguild.com/event-1725512. The Book Fair will be followed by a writer guest speaker at 6:00 pm in the Wilda Marston Theater. We will post more information about specific authors and events later on, so please check back in as Alaska Book Week approaches!

Barnes and Noble Promotion

We would also like to invite you to shop at Barnes and Noble during Alaska Book Week to support our statewide celebration. Simply say "Alaska Book Week" at the cash register, and a percentage of your purchase will go to Alaska Book Week. We would like to thank Barnes and Noble for sharing in this exciting partnership with Alaska Book Week! We also encourage you to help us promote Barnes and Noble during Alaska Book Week; here is a preliminary flyer advertising the event:
