On March 27, 1964, Alaska was hit by a huge earthquake. Just 45 miles from the epicenter, the town of Valdez was devastated. This is the story of that event and the amazing follow-up as the entire town was invited to move to a new site! Our Book Group met to hear from the author, Tabitha Gregory, and there’s a U-Tube video to prove it!

Our first group zoom of 2023 was held on February 1st and featured a bunch of writers showing off their recent work. We had a lot of fun and sure found some great new items to read! Here’s a U-Tube link for your pleasure:

Our 2nd get-together for the Local Authors Book Group will feature local author Chris Bieker who will share the 2nd book in her Rex Begonia series – Blood on Bloomsday.
