Theresa Quiner, librarian at the Kuskokwim Consortium Library in Bethel snapped this photo a couple of days ago and Mary gave us permission to post it on my Facebook page. Mary had been sitting for about an hour reading Fighter in Velvet Gloves and didn’t appear to be going anywhere else anytime soon. So excited to get to meet Mary at the end of September when I will be traveling to Bethel on a book tour. Stay tuned for more about the tour later. Thank you to Theresa and Mary.

One more thing……Turns out there may be a Peratrovich relative living in Bethel. More about this later too.
