Sherman Alexie


Please join us for the 12th Annual Kieve Lecture featuring Sherman Alexie, discussing "Security, Sovereignty, Selfishness: How to Be a 21st Century American Nomad".

Author, poet, and screenwriter Sherman Alexie connects readers around the world to the American Indian experience, making them laugh, cry, and think through his semi-autobiographical writings. One of The New Yorker’s 20 top writers for the 21st century, Alexie was described by Men’s Journal as “the world’s first fast-talking, wisecracking, mediagenic American-Indian superstar." His National Book Award-winning The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, a #1 New York Times bestseller, was named the best Young Adult Book of all time by TIME.
