Book signing planned Saturday
Alaskan Gift and Gallery in Kenai will host a book signing for Homer author Sara Budinger Peterson on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
Peterson has written two new books, "Alice: An Alaskan Pioneer" and "Alice Meets Inupiat Eskimos." Each book is illustrated by watercolor artists Dianne Widom and Mary Bee Kaufman.
The books tell stories of a 6-year-old girl who leaves the comfort of her grandmother's home in Pennsylvania at the end of World War II to live in rural Alaska. Based on the stories of Homer legend Yule Kilcher, the author has created a young reader's novel of Alaska adventure that even adult readers will enjoy.
Both books also have additional activity books to accompany the short novels.
For more information, call Alaskan Gift and Gallery at 283-3655.
