Beyond the Cover Feature: This month we feature James Rains, the local author of the apocalyptic biomedical thriller Afognak. He discusses his book and reads an excerpt from it, as well as an excerpt from the next book in this series, entitled Chiniak. James talks about his books, his writing style, offers advice to aspiring authors and writers, and explains how he got published and why he prefers his style of publishing over self-publishing or going with a traditional publisher.
Lively LibChats: Ellie Werbe and Michael Bach from the Kodiak Public Library give a brief review of the graphic novel “Ghosts” by Raina Telgemeir for this Halloween themed show. They also discuss some upcoming Halloween events happening at the Kodiak Public Library in October.
