Bob Armstrong has written numerous books about Southeast Alaska. He will participate in a book signing event from 1-6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 13 at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

A book signing event with local author, photographer and nature expert Bob Armstrong will be held from 1-6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 13 in the Alaska Geographic bookstore located inside the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

Branch manager Leo Lanham said visitors to the center have expressed great interest in Armstrong and his books since the beginning of the season.

“We’ve had a great deal of interest from folks who would like to meet him,” Lanham said. “It will be great to recognize the contribution he has made to the community.”

Lanham said the bookstore carries more than 10 books that Armstrong has authored or coauthored. In all, the local has completed roughly 16 books that touch on broad topics such as bird species in Alaska, as well as niche-oriented topics like the beavers that reside in the Dredge Lakes area. His latest book, “Aquatic Insects of Alaska,” which was written with John Hudson and Kathy Hocker, outlines the most common aquatic insects that live in our northern regions and why they are important. This book, like many others, appeals to a large audience.

“He has books that range from children’s books to college-level reading,” Lanham said. “His photography, especially on a macro level, is just unreal.”

Books will be available for signing, Lanham said, and participants will need to pay a $3 entry fee to the visitor center, or present their National Parks Pass.
