Sherman Alexie

PENELOPE BASS
7:30 pm., Tuesday March 12 | Sold out.
 
Combining poignant racial commentary with his signature wry wit and self-deprecating humor, author Sherman Alexie (The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian) knows how to make a point. As the chosen author of the Multnomah County Library “Everybody Reads” program, Alexie will appear for an evening of readings, discussion and slightly offensive Indian jokes. Trust us, he’s even better in person.

Where: Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
Phone: 248-4335
Address: 1037 SW Broadway
