by Kathleen McCoy  |   

Monday, Jan. 31, 5-7 p.m.
UAA Campus Bookstore

Mary Alice Cook discusses "An Intentional Community," life in an Orthodox Christian church in Eagle River and her book "Community of Grace: An Orthodox Christian Year in Alaska."

After their marriage in 1976, Mary Alice and her husband drove from Texas to Anchorage where their three sons were born and raised. In 1992, after a life-changing event, the whole family converted to the Eastern Orthodox Church and a year later decided to make their home near St. John's Cathedral in Eagle River, which is  the unique "intentional community" that Mary Alice has written about in "Community of Grace."

Mary Alice earned a degree from UAA in 1992. After raising her family, she returned to graduate school studying Public History with an emphasis on museum and archival work. "Community of Grace" is her first published book.
