Program Description

Event Details

Join local author Christian Shane as he discusses his debut middle school book, Salmon Survivor. There will be a discussion and fly tying demonstration with a possible book signing at the end of the program. 

Salmon Survivor is a story about navigating loss and grief after the death of a parent or loved one. After Jack's father drowns unexpectedly in a fishing accident, he struggles with life returning to any sense of normalcy. Due to the loss of his favorite fishing partner, Jack gives up his love of fishing and journaling, until he is forced to travel from Pennsylvania to Alaska to meet his grandfather. Over the summer, Jack challenges himself to do something his father never accomplished, catching the Alaskan Salmon Slam: all five species of Pacific salmon. An experienced fisherman, he encounters more than he expected fly fishing in the Last Frontier. Against Alaska's mighty wilderness, wildlife, and weather, can Jack complete the slam before the summer's end? Or will he drown trying?
