12th Annual Anne and Loren Kieve Distinguished Speaker Lecture: Sherman Alexie

The Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity present the 12th Annual Kieve Lecture featuring Sherman Alexie.

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.
