Reading and Craft Talk Series
Our Reading and Craft Talk series provides opportunities for published authors to address informal audiences on topics related to the craft of writing. Held at Great Harvest Bread Company in Anchorage, these free talks generally begin with a short reading followed by a 20-30 minute craft talk. The event concludes with a question and answer session and book signing. (Authors are responsible for providing their own books.)
Among Wolves: How A Book Found Me
Thursday, December 5
7 - 8:30 pm
Marybeth Holleman will give a craft talk about the process of creating her newest book, Among Wolves: Gordon Haber's Insights into Alaska's Most Misunderstood Animal. She'll discuss how books find us - whether or not we're even looking their way. She'll also talk about the process of crafting what one reviewer called a new kind of biography - one whose structure mirrors the book's essential message. She'll also share a few of Haber's stories from his 43 years among wolves.
Marybeth Holleman is author of several books, including The Heart of the Sound. A Pushcart nominee, her poetry, articles, and essays have been published in a wide range of venues, most recently the poetry anthology Reckless. She has taught creative writing and women’s studies at the University of Alaska Anchorage, and writes for nonprofits on environmental issues. She blogs about Art and Nature at www.artandnatureand.blogspot.com.
49 Writers typically schedules three Reading & Craft Talks in fall and three in spring. We prefer to confirm presenters at least four weeks in advance but we are always open to additional opportunities as they present themselves. Click here to propose a Reading and Craft Talk.
