Leigh Newman

April 26, 2013 - 10:00 am

leigh_newmanLeigh Newman author of the just published Still Points North: One Alaskan Childhood, One Grown-Up World, One Long Journey Home spent some of her early teenage years hanging out at a local bookstore.  She said, “It was my refuge. I loved that place. I used to sit and read and dream that I’d grow up to be….no, not a writer…but a bookstore owner.” But Leigh did grow up to be a writer.  We shall explore how that happened and other fascinating adventures along the way including her Alaskan training, which taught her to pack light, survive scares aboard her father’s Cessna and elude marauding bears in rising flood waters.
