Why We Should Read Sherman Alexie? Thoughts of Library Lynn(e)s.

Experience Sherman Alexie Lynn M. Piotrowicz, Director

Alexie uses few words to describe with poignancy the plight of the contemporary Indian (and I use that descriptor because he does even though it is now no longer politically correct terminology).  His stories are rife with broken people: alcoholism, violence, diseases, and mental health issues infiltrate the reservation.  No HUD house is immune to the inherent ills of poverty.  READ MORE

Will the Real Sherman Alexie Please Stand Up? Lynne Lawrence, Library Specialist

It’s a little harder to categorize Native American author, Sherman Alexie - poet, novelist, teller of short stories. His 2008 murder mystery, Indian Killer, is unflinchingly brutal. A year later he produced The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, a young adult book that is both cruel and touching. [Alexie himself reads the Overdrive audio in a captivating sing-song accent that brings the book to a whole new level.] These two books are vastly different . . . and yet, the writer’s voice is consistent - honest, poetic, wry, resolute, humorous – all the more effective because difficult truths are delivered in a conversational manner that frequently masks raw pain or transcendent beauty.  READ MORE
