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?

Fighter wins top international children’s literature award!

Fighter Makes List for Top Books to Better Understand the World

I didn’t know how rigorous publication with a University Press would be until I began working with the University of Alaska Press…

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jig

Made it home to Bellingham with a few minor gliches – broken telescoping suitcase handle and tooth! But happy to see my hubby Scott Miller and our dog Zz after the Alaska Book Week Tour.

Last Stop – Dillingham in Bristol Bay, Alaska

A place that will always be close to my heart, Dillingham was much of the inspiration for my first book Bristol Bay Summer. I gave my final presentation at the local Native corporation Curyung Community Center (pronounced Chugyung) to a full-house.

Back to Anchorage for One More School Visit

My last night in Anchorage included dinner at the Southside Bistro. Mmmmmm. A special thank you to my hosts Marti Pausback and Bill Michaelson.
