We are now in our Spring Hours at the Roadhouse and are opening the Bakery and Breakfast line at 7am!
 
April has been Poetry Month and the calendar has been peppered with poetry-themed events. The Poetry Book Spine challenge the Talkeetna Library promotes is one of my favorites, and a sends me on a search for what’s in our book stash. The picture in this Note cuts off the first two titles. In full: Alaska, Not for a Woman + Alone Across the Arctic + The Storms of Denali + Alone at the Top + Wings of Her Dreams. Indeed!

We always recommend double checking with the particular venue/host organization to verify all events and happenings are still a ‘go.’ Things change fast…sometimes faster that we can update! Good places to find event information for Talkeetna – besides right here! – are the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce Calendar of Events page and KTNA’s website under Today’s Announcements.
 
Take care!
