Russian writers are visiting Alaska


by Your Alaska Link News Team

Russian writers are visiting Alaska to learn about its culture.

Juneau-area teacher Janna Lelchuk spent time with the group while the writers were in the capital city earlier this month. She told the reporters the trip had been in the works for more than two years and that the writers plan to document their Alaska experiences when they return home.

The writers had a mix of reasons for wanting to visit Alaska. Some wanted to learn more about the way of life here or to further their studies on parallels between Russia and Alaska. Most simply shared a fascination with Alaska and wanted to see it themselves.
