Fairbanks Arts is pleased to present a literary reading with Margaret Merritt!
Margaret Merritt, Ph.D. has been a researcher for 50 years, studying animals, ecology and people—while the data bases have differed, the quest to uncover information, accurately place information in context, and draw reliable inferences is the same. She attended the University of California, Utah State University, and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Alaska. She has decades of experience in writing and publishing scientific literature, and has recently focused her research and writing on historical biographies. She has lived in Fairbanks since 1988.
In this reading event, Margaret will be presenting on two of her historical biographies, Roshier H. Creecy: A Black Man’s Search for Freedom and Prosperity in the Koyukuk Gold Fields of Alaska and Joseph Strunka: A Ceská Chicago Man’s Tale of Resilience.
This free reading will start at 6 pm in the Bear Gallery; we welcome masked individuals with a cap of 20 audience members and attendees must register on our website.
