This segment originally aired on September 23, 2011.

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.  Here, he talks with Tom Hall about the book, and about changing world views of American Indians.

    He’s wonderful. I completely agree. We’re reading this in my teen boy book club at the teen center this year and I can not be more excited.
