"I couldn't believe it when they chose my book. To have your work honored at home in Alaska, in this way, is really special," said Rearden, an associate professor in the Community & Technical College. "To have my title added to the list of other books that have been selected for Anchorage Reads, like 'To Kill A Mockingbird' and 'Fahrenheit 451' is something I'll always treasure!"

Rearden's book made it onto The Washington Post's "Notable Fiction of 2013" list in which he was hailed as a "master of the cliffhanger."

Community members from the Anchorage School District and the UAA/APU Books of the Year program helped select the book and design the programming for Anchorage Reads. The goal is to encourage reading, promote the library and connect the Anchorage community.

Anchorage Reads will run from Feb. 20 – March 20, 2015. Activities will include book club groups, a readers’ theater performance, an Author Talk by Rearden, and story times for younger readers that will feature a visit by Crawford the Raven.
