Award Winning Native American Writer Discusses His Novel at Baltimore Book Festival

Novelist Sherman Alexie is scheduled to talk today at the festival at 2 p.m.

“Do you know why the Indian rain dances always worked? Because the Indians would keep dancing until it rained.” 
                                                                      ― Sherman Alexie

If there's one writer you should hear today at the Baltimore Book Festival, Sherman Alexie is worth the trip to Mount Vernon.

Here's what the book festival says on its website:

"Author, poet and screenwriter Sherman Alexie was named one of The New Yorker’s 20 top writers for the 21st century. Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is based on the author's own experiences, chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live. It is a 2007 National Book Award winner in Young People’s Literature and the 2011 One Maryland One Book. Presented by the Maryland Humanities Council."
