LOCAL AUTHORS
Homer has long been a hotbed of local talent in many fields. Many of the finest authors in the State of Alaska have
either lived in the Homer area, or currently reside in the Homer area. We have tried our best to make sure that all
local authors are included on this list, however, unintentional omissions are possible. If you notice such an omission,
please send an email (
homerbookstore@ak.net) alerting us to the error. (Some titles may not be currently in stock.)
Thank you.
~ AUTOGRAPHED COPIES OF MANY OF THE BOOKS LISTED BELOW ARE AVAILABLE ~
Due to the popularity of local Author's books, combined with the limited availability of some authors (who often travel
much more frequently than the rest of us), it is problematic to keep signed copies of
all local books in
stock at
all times. Fortunately, authors are very accommodating about signing their books so we will
endeavor to acquire autographed books from them, for our customers.
