Every summer, thousands of visitors drive, boat and fly to the Kenai Peninsula. This week on Coffee Table, we’ll be diving into the world of tourism in “Alaska’s Playground.” We’ll speak with representatives from the peninsula tourism industry, including Jim Lavrakas, executive director of the Homer Chamber of Commerce, Michelle Glaves, executive director of the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce, and Shanon Hamrick, executive director of the Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council. Our guests will cover fishing, industry trends, ecotourism, and...the bed tax.

Summer is the season when many people pick up those books they’ve been meaning to read for a while. And public libraries around the peninsula take advantage of the months when school is out to get kids excited about reading. On this week’s Coffee Table, we’ll talk with Rebecca Barnick of the Kenai Community Library and Claudia Haines of the Homer Public Library about summer reading programs, what’s hot in children’s literature, and find out what they’ve got in their bookbags.
