Thank You!

Though it has been a couple of weeks since Alaska Book Week ended, and though we have been sending thank-yous all over the state, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made Alaska Book Week a success this year! We have expanded on our events and outreach thanks to the dedication of authors, booksellers, publishers, librarians, teachers, sponsors, and other community members.
