The first official book signing in Alaska was at Meade River School on the North Slope of Alaska. I didn’t care if a single book sold, it was so wonderful to see students that have grown up so beautifully! The current seniors were in fifth/sixth grade when I left so I did a lot of double takes – got names confused to the point that even I was worried about my sanity. Parent-teacher conferences were going on at the same time and so was an ASTAC basketball contest, so the hallway was full of people and I sold far more books that expected. Thank you to the community of Atqasuk for your warm “welcome back” and your continuing support!
