We are beyond thrilled and thankful for the overwhelming acceptance of our author meet and greet and book fair event Friday, March 4 from 11:00 – 11:50 in the Redington Room at the Lakefront Hotel in Anchorage. We couldn’t ask for a more iconic line up of Iditarod authors and are hoping a few more will be added soon.
Meet these authors and share with them your love for their works as well as get their autographs on your treasured copies. You may purchase books ahead of time; some books will be available at the event, but if you have a favorite title you’d like to get autographed, you may wish to bring it or purchase it before Friday. Some authors are offering educators discounts to conference attendees.
Our recommended reading list is Iditarod and mushing focused, but each of these authors has an impressive list of titles of their own, great books for information about Alaska, memoirs, and history for children and adults.
