STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY THROUGH READING!

The Everybody Reads 2013 selections are two books by Sherman AlexieThe Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and Ten Little Indians.

In partnership with Multnomah County Library and The Library FoundationLiterary Arts is pleased to announce an upcoming event with Sherman Alexie at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. This live lecture is the culmination of the community reading project.

Sherman Alexie is one of today’s most captivating and popular writers whose poignant and emotionally resonant stories about Native Americans have won several major literary awards. TheNew York Times has said that in Alexie’s “warm, revealing, invitingly roundabout stories, the central figures come in all shapes and sizes, sharing their wry perspectives on Indian life off the reservation.”If you’re not familiar with Alexie or his work, listen to his engaging conversation with Dave Miller on OPB’s Think Out Loud.

We hope you, your friends and neighbors will join us on March 12, 2013 to hear the author discuss his masterful work which has been inspired by his own experiences growing up on the Spokane Indian reservation.
