      Alaskan Literature for Alaska Generations with Loretta Outwater Cox. Linda Schandelemier, and Susanna Mishler.

      Three creative literary artists come together to share their writings and views on Alaska literature.

      Linda Schandelmeier grew up on a 160-acre family homestead six miles south of Anchorage. In 1976, she moved to Fairbanks to attend the University of Alaska where she continues to reside, today. Her new collection of poems, Coming Out of Nowhere, Alaska Homestead Poems is part memoir and part historical document.

      Inupiaq educator and teacher Loretta Outwater Cox is author of the Alaska classics: The Winter Walk: A Century-Old Survival Story from the Arctic, and The Storytellers' Club: The Picture-Writing Women of the Arctic. She was born in Nome, AK and raised in various villages around the Seward Peninsula. She holds a master's degree in Educational Administration from UAF and has taught in Western Alaska for twenty-three years.

      Poet Susanna Mishler reads from her collection Termination Dust and discusses her work in progress. Raised and currently living in Anchorage, Susanna Mishler teaches workshops and earns a living as an electrician. During her MFA studies at University of Arizona in Tucson, she served as a poetry editor for the Sonora Review
