ALIBI FOR STOLEN LIGHT
Tuesday, June 5th @ 5pm
Over 25 years ago, Elaine Shea traveled to Alaska to serve as an early childhood federal reviewer visiting American Indian, and Alaska Native Head Start villages. To get around, she relied on Alaska dog sleds, 3-wheelers, sn ow machines and bush planes once she crossed the Arctic Circle. Vivid imagery fills these 50 vignettes and poems about Alaska’s culture and natives, seen through the sensitive lens of an esteemed American poet from Montana. Elaine captures the people, places, and experiences of her time.
Travel with Elaine as she explores America’s Last Frontier and other native lands in the US through her beautiful memoir of place, time, and people in Sky Songs North.
Alibi for Stolen Light is the second book in the Montana Poets Series #3.
