Snowman fun

Dear snowy reader,

Dozens of families gathered on the lawn of the Loussac Libary in Anchorage on Saturday for a snowman building contest. The event was in conjunction with this year’s Anchorage Reads, The Snow Child.

Here are some photos from Saturday’s fun, which included hot chocolate, craft projects, beautiful ice sculptures, and lots and lots of lovely snow people.

With the talented Anchorage ice sculptors Carol and Tom Lewando.


One of my favorite snowmen from the event.

Anchorage Reads events continue tonight — I’ll be at the University of Alaska Anchorage Bookstore from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for a reading, signing and interview with David Stevenson, creative writing director at UAA. Hope to see some of you there.

    Hi Eowyn

    This is actually the first time I write to an author, but somehow it feels as if I need to tell you how much I loved your book. I’ve read so many books but hardly one was ever that heartbreaking and magical as yours. Your book will get a save place on my bookshelf!

    Kind regards from snow covered Switzerland,


  • Hey Eowyn, There are very interesting photos. I have experienced that as well in Switzerland, it was really awesome to be there.
