Meet Author Sherman Alexie!

Meet Sherman Alexie author of Blasphemy: New and Collected Stories on Tuesday, November 13th! Sherman Alexie's stature as a writer of stories, poetry, and novels has soared over the course of his twenty-two-book, twenty-year career. His wide-ranging and adventurous fiction from The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven to his most recent PEN/Faulkner Award-winning War Dances, have established him as a star in contemporary American literature.

A bold and irreverent observer of life among Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest, the daring, versatile and funny Alexie showcases his many talents in Blasphemy. Included here are some of his most esteemed tales, including "What You Pawn I Will Redeem," in which a homeless Indian man quests to win back a family heirloom; "This Is What It Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona," a road-trip morality tale; "The Toughest Indian in the World," about a night shared between a writer and a hitchhiker; and his most recent, "War Dances," about a man grappling with sudden hearing loss in the wake of his father's death.
