Join us Saturday morning on the Big Alaska Show as we feature 3 Alaskan authors and their books!
Elishaba Doerksen (Out of the Wilderness), Richard Chiappone (The Hunger of Crows) and Steve Levi (Bonfire Saloon) join our Big Alaska Show Book Panel, Lois Paige Simenson, Chris Chris Forbes Lundgren and Stan Jones for book reviews the way they should be: fun!
Besides their books, you’ll get to know these authors more personally. Plus we even have a Tall Alaska Tale – or is it? There are strange things done in the Midnight Sun!
Designed to raise your spirits, not your blood pressure, (just leave your muddy boots and politics at the door!)
