Lende Book Reading
Heathers' reading was well attended, and there were lots of misty eyes in the crowd as she read passages from her book. A book reading brings the words to life-amplifies them. To hear Heathers words spoken by her was very powerful indeed.
After the reading there was an evening gathering of local writers with her. I enjoyed talking with Heather and hearing about her years as columnist at the then-Ancorage Daily News. The stories which resonated the most with me in my current state as a columnist is how she, too, would scramble to find things to write about. This was comforting, as I, too, sometimes find myself scramble for topics.
Heather has a beautiful, comforting presence. She is so grounded and positive. Such lovely energy. I"m so glad to have met her in person.
