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!
Wonderful seeing those familiar faces!
If you are talking about the crazy Crabtrees, you make me smile.
Oh, just figured out that you were talking about Atqasuk peeps. Now, they are a kick!
