9-23-11: Sherman Alexie
Author Sherman Alexie has written novels, screen plays, short stories, and poetry. In 2007, he won the National Book Award for The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. It is a funny and poignant story of a Native American teenager negotiating the challenges of adolescence, race, poverty, family, and friends.
The Maryland Humanities Council made it this year’s One Maryland, One Book selection, and this weekend, Sherman Alexie is in the area making a number of appearances to talk about it, including at the Baltimore Book Festival on Saturday.
