Virtual Alaska Story Hour for Adults
We’re continuing to read this heartfelt remembrance of a longtime Homer character and influential counterculture Alaskan.
This book covers Asaiah’s life from childhood, as Claude Bates, growing up in North Carolina, to treasured Homer icon and prophet to his friends and neighbors in that "Cosmic Hamlet of the Sea." It would be easy to dismiss him as a kook, but persistent involvement in the community and gentle insight were difficult to ignore, and he became treasured by people of all stripes for his willingness, or really insistence, of speaking the truth as he saw it.
Author Martha Ellen Anderson weaves the story through her own quest to fulfill her promise to write this book.
