State library welcomes photographer Amy Gulick

Award winning photographer and author Amy Gulick will speak about her new book, “The Salmon Way: An Alaska State of Mind”, on Wednesday, March 4, at the Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum in Juneau.

Gulick has traveled throughout Alaska to explore the human relationships that revolve around these iconic fish. She crewed on commercial fishing boats, learned the art of preserving fish and culture from Alaska Native families, and how to cast her line from sport fishing guides. Her new book portrays how people connect to each other through the fish that define their lives.

Gulick has received numerous honors, including a Lowell Thomas award from the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation, the Daniel Housberg Wilderness Image Award from the Alaska Conservation Foundation and the Voice of the Wild Award from the Alaska Wilderness League. Her first book, “Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska’s Tongass Rainforest”, won a Nautilus and Independent Publisher Book Award.

The program is to be recorded for broadcast later on 360 North and on the web at The event is sponsored by Alaska Longline Fishermen’s Association, Barnacle Foods, Braided River, Commercial Fishermen for Bristol Bay, Salmon Beyond Borders, SalmonState, Taku Fisheries, Taku River Reds, UnCruise Adventures, and the Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum.
