Steam Laundry by Nicole Stellon O'Donnell

Steam Laundry is a novel in poems available from Boreal Books, an imprint of Red Hen Press. It tells the story of Sarah Ellen Gibson, the sixth woman to arrive in Fairbanks in the gold rush of 1903. With her two children, she followed her husband to Dawson City, Yukon Territory in 1898. As their relationship faltered and her business opportunities dried up, she fled to Fairbanks with hopes of opening her own hotel. The book weaves persona, with poems in the voices of many characters, lyric poems, and historical photographs and documents to trace her path.

Steam Laundry won the 2012 Willa Literary Award for Poetry and was the 2017-2018 Alaska Reads selection. Alaska Reads is a library-based biennial statewide reading program. A book by a living Alaskan writer is chosen every two years.

Hard copy. E-book is also available if you prefer (but I'd need to figure out how to get it to you--the publisher has the files).

I live in Alaska, United States.
