Noted Alaskan Writer Debbie S. Miller Debuts Latest Book On Alaskan Wilderness
Debbie is presenting her new book A WILD PROMISE- PRINCE WILLIAM SOUND, featuring her essays covering the natural and cultural history, people and fragility of the region accompanied by the stunning photography of Hugh Rose.
A resident of the far north state for forty years, Debbie writes both children and adult literature centered around her love of nature. She has won multiple awards including the 2013 Outstanding Science Trade Book For Children by the National Science Teachers Association and Children’s Book Council for SURVIVAL AT 120 ABOVE.
A WILD PROMISE – In A WILD PROMISE, readers travel alongside Hugh and Debbie as they hike and kayak from Columbia Glacier to College Fjord, exploring the Nellie Juan-College Fjord Wilderness Study area, a region set aside for study in 1980, to be followed, it was hoped, by permanent protection from Congress. After almost four decades of being in limbo as a designated wilderness study area, the fate of this spectacular, wild place is now in our hands.
Palm Springs Speaks – Palm Springs Speaks is a Speaker Series presented in the west end of the Coachella Valley by the Palm Springs Cultural Center and the Friends of the Palm Springs Public Library.
