AVP 19: Linnea Lentfer, Author, “Hold the Tide”

Linnea Lentfer reads passages from and discusses her debut novel. “Hold the Tide” is told by a young girl who like Lentfer, is raised hunting deer and gathering berries in remote and wild Southeast Alaska. Unlike the author, her protagonist grew up in a prior century, the child of a shunned and threatened single mother. Lentfer began writing her book when she was 12, the same age as her narrator. “Hold the Tide” was published as she graduated from high school and began college. “More than a page-turner, more than a great read, this is a significant and beautiful book about the courage of women in a cold, but life-graced land.” -Kathleen Dean Moore, Author, “Earth’s Wild Music”
