I love writing that. And you are dear to me, more than you will ever know. Without you, I’m talking to myself…
I appreciate you stopping by, reading what I write, and especially sharing my books, which are available at libraries and wherever books are sold.
Thank you VERY much for purchasing signed and personalized copies from Amy Kane at The Bookstore in Haines at firstname.lastname@example.org or 907-766-3356. It’s been a great gift to our town, and The Bookstore during these challenging times.
Find the Good is an audio book that I narrate. Of Bears and Ballots is also on audio.

On the blog are photos and what I think of as postcards or letters to you. Please Subscribe if you’d like to be notified of new posts. (It’s free.)
I am happy to Zoom with book clubs, and now that I’m the Alaska State Writer Laureate I’m happy to Zoom with any library, classroom, community or writing and reading group that asks.

“Democracy! It’s glorious chaos,” the owner of the local paper observes. It’s testimony to Lende’s special gift that, in spite of the pain and sadness involved in her political adventure, she leaves her readers with that same conclusion.
“Lende writes emotionally but never sentimentally, giving us the best Alaska memoir of late, maybe the best ever.“
