OCTOBER MEETING Sat Oct 8, 10 am at the Mt.Baker Encore Room. This gathering will be ZOOM and in person.

Our next monthly meeting is also Indigenous Day. Our guest speaker for that day is author: Annie Boochever, who has written a book on Elisabeth Peratrovich, to honor her as first native woman, to address and win over the Alaska Senate in 1945 for civil rights for the indigenous people. Elisabeth Peratrovich was a civil right activist, a member of Tlingit nation who worked for equality on behalf of Alaska Natives. The book’s name is: Fighter in Velvet Gloves: Alaska Civil Rights Hero Elizabeth Peratrovich. It is a suitable book for middle school children. According to the author, the book has been very popular in Alaska. In 2019, the year the book was released, the Alaska  League of Women Voters purchased copies and distributed them to every legislator and to every middle school library in Alaska. Also, a group of Alaskan librarians funded an Alaska tour for the author to speak about the book to various schools, libraries, even youth correctional facilities in Alaska.
