Sherman Alexie and War Dances

One of the most respected names in contemporary American literature--National Book Award recipient Sherman Alexie--will read from and sign his new collection of fiction, War Dances.

Alexie has written three story collections, two screenplays, 12 volumes of poetry (including Face, published last March) and three novels, including The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, the 2007 National Book Award winner for Young People's fiction. True Diary was inspired by Alexie's own remarkable, improbable life, from his birth with hydrocephalus (doctors didn't expect him to live, and certainly not without retardation), to his determined 44-mile daily round-trip walk to a "better" high school off the reservation, to the pinnacle of literary success.
