Annie Boochever — Alaskan Author.

My books were inspired by real people, places, and events in Alaska:

Bristol Bay Summer

An Alaskan adventure novel published in 2014 by Alaska Northwest Books, won a Literary Classics award for best first novel and was a middle-grade selection for the Alaska State Battle of the Books reading motivation program. It is is based on my personal experiences as a single mom in a remote fish camp in Bristol Bay. 

Fighter in Velvet Gloves: Alaska Civil Rights Hero Elizabeth Peratrovich

The story of a legendary Alaska Native woman written in collaboration with her only living child, Roy Peratrovich, Jr., now 84 years old. It is a picture biography for middle grade and young adult readers published by Snowy Owl Books, an imprint of the University of Alaska Press. It will be released January 15, 2019.

 

 

Annie’s interest in Alaska Native culture lead to a collaboration with the Sealaska Heritage Institute to write musical plays adapted from ancestral stories and historical events, for production by elementary and middle school students.  

 

 

How do you engage 300-400 elementary students and instill an appreciation and deep understanding of other cultures along with a passion for all things music?

Peratrovich Park & Commemorative Coin

It just makes sense to visit the Elizabeth and Roy Peratrovich park in Anchorage to kick off my book tour for Fighter in Velvet Gloves.

The Alaska Tour Begins!

This Alaska Book Week Tour is the result of the hard work and effort of many librarians, for which I have new appreciation. While I was waiting for my connecting flight to Bethel in the Anchorage airport, I found Mary!
