Alaska From the Inside Out

Author Sally Mahieu will read from and discuss her recent book, Alaska From the Inside Out: Memories of Suzanne Nuyen Henning.

About the book:

It’s a long way from a small town in West Michigan to the wild bush country of Alaska, but that’s where Suzanne Henning ended up. Armed with only a teaching degree, Suzanne set off with her new husband for Alaska. Armed with only a teaching degree, she took whatever work she could find to help her husband, a surveyor for the Alaska Aviation Division, make ends meet. When she finally landed a teaching position in Savoonga on St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Strait, life began to change…

Everyone is welcome to attend this free event. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
