At this point, we are committed to making Book Week happen in October 2020. What form this will take is still up in the air. The committee is considering different possibilties. To participate in Alaska Book Week 2020, email information about who is putting on the event, what is its purpose, and where and when it takes place. Also send any images such as book covers, authors’ headshots, logos, venues or other artwork that will help us publicize your event and Book Week in general. Information about the events will be posted on the Alaska Book Week website and Facebook page and through other social media and traditional media outlets.Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Alaska Book Week, a statewide event that annually celebrates the many ways that we all appreciate books, from readings, to panels, lectures, discussions and an art exhibit. We listed more than 35 literary events that occurred during this time at more than 25 venues around the state.

The Alaska Center for the Book is the main organizer for this annual event. The Alaska Center for the Book is the state affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. The Alaska Center is an all-volunteer organization that strives to stimulate public interest in literacy through the spoken and written word, central to our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
