49 writers weekly roundup

Thunder and lightning as I type…you can probably guess I’m not in Alaska at the moment. But even from a few thousand miles away, there’s news to report.

First, don’t forget to vote for our next book club selection (sidebar to the right). We’re planning to discuss the book during the last weekend in June.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Alaska Northwest Books wanted to share this new book trailer (produced by Jessi Gates) for Kaylene Johnson’s new book, A Tender Distance: Adventures Raising My Sons in Alaska. Scheduled for release in late July, the book is “a collection of stories told with wit, wisdom, and a grateful heart,” says the publisher.

This month brings several great book events at Title Wave in Anchorage. Tonight (May 8) at 7 p.m., Dan Coyle will be signing and discussing his latest, The Talent Code. On Saturday, May 9, at 1 p.m., Susan Arnout Smith will be signing her new book, Out at Night. On Thursday, May 21, Paul Twardock returns to discuss and sign Kayaking and Camping in Prince William Sound, at 6:30 p.m. The following Thursday, May 28th, Miranda Weiss will sign and discuss her first book, Tide, Feather Snow: A Life in Alaska, at 7 p.m.
