It’s being held March 31–April 2, 2023, in Flagstaff.
Soulstice Publishing will take part in this year’s Northern Arizona Book Festival in multiple ways. We’ll be participating in readings and panels and hosting a table in Heritage Square where our authors will meet the public and sign books. We’re even sponsoring a community run!
Established in 1997, the Northern Arizona Book Festival is a literary nonprofit that coordinates events reflecting the literary interests and cultural issues that define life in the Colorado Plateau region of northern Arizona.
Soulstice’s events are listed below. For the entire festival schedule, visit www.noazbookfest.org/2023.
10–7:30: Visit Soulstice at our table in Heritage Square. We’re here to talk about books and celebrate the lively writing scene in Flagstaff. Come take a look at what we’ve created so far!
Between 11:00 and noon: Mable Wauneka Goodwin and Margaret Miller will read from their family’s chapter of Voices of Navajo Mothers and Daughters: Portraits of Beauty. In the book, which was published by Flagstaff-based Soulstice Publishing in 2022, Navajo women from 21 families talk about their lives, their culture, and their love for one another. Mable and Margaret were featured along with Mable’s mom, Marie, in Chapter 15.
12–1: Mable Wauneka Goodwin, Margaret Miller, and author Kathy Eckles Hooker will sign their book at Soulstice’s table in Heritage Square.
1–2: John L. Vankat will sign copies of The San Francisco Peaks and Flagstaff Through the Lens of Time at Soulstice’s table in Heritage Square.
5–6:30: Soulstice Co-founder and Publisher Myles Schrag (ghostwriter of Abdi’s World and Catch Me If You Can) will take part in a Literary Editing & Publishing Panel at Liminal Flagstaff (217 S San Francisco Street).
10:00: Soulstice is sponsoring the Festival’s “Flagstaff Book (Drive) Run,” starting from Flagstaff High School. Donate a book, get a map to seven books about running and Flagstaff hidden along the FUTS path — including To Imogene, a Flagstaff Love Letter and Abdi’s World.
