Book Signing at Park Visitor Center
Local author Doris Chapin Bailey will sign copies of her new book “A Divided Forest” at Sitka National Historical Park on Sunday, July 20th. Ms. Bailey describes her book as the story of the life, times and lineage of Roy Daniel Bailey, a Southeast Alaska Tlingit who was born in 1926, in a culture that was in disarray due to many factors. The book follows Roy’s childhood and young adult years as he learned how to live in a confusing world, facing many challenges with a strong spirit, a sense of humor and a refusal to be cast into any man-made mold. Written as the story of a struggle for identity and value, the author intends her book to encourage others to share their own life histories so that future generations might better understand those who lived in this time period. The event will be held from 10:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. in the park Visitor Center. For more information please call the park Visitor Center at 747-0110.
