From termination dust to spring break-up, snow in Alaska is celebrated and studied. Join Homer-based author Miranda Weiss and local climatologist Brian Brettschneider for an immersive experience of snow and the language of snow. Weiss is a science and nature writer whose book, “Tide, Feather, Snow: A Life in Alaska,” was a bestseller in the Pacific Northwest. She is currently exploring the world of snow for her second book. Brettschneider is an Anchorage-based environmental planner and climatologist who writes an Alaska weather blog and can often be heard on Alaska Public Media’s “Ask a Climatologist” program. Unbound loosens words from the page through experimental literary events. Included with Polar Nights admission.
