Attention Bloomingtonians

(That's Bloomingtonians of the Hoosier variety, not the ones from Illinois or Minnesota or whatever other Bloomingtons they've got out there.)

Sherman Alexie will be reading on Wednesday, April 18th at 8:00 pm at the John Waldron Arts Center. It's free, and supposedly there's some kind of a reception afterwards although I don't have the details.

I don't know whether he will be reading fiction (he has a new novel that's either just out or coming out very soon) or poetry or what, but I'm sure he will be entertaining whatever he does. Alexie has been one of my favorite writers for quite a while now, but I've never heard him read before and I am looking forward to it like crazy.

Those of you currently getting socked-in by the big nor'easter, I hope you are somewhere warm and safe and dry tonight! Looks pretty nasty out there.

Sherman Alexie is a great reader. I saw him in Park City at a Writing Conference when he was working on Indian Killer. Very funny guy, though the audience I saw him with was also a bit over-eager to demonstrate their appreciation, I felt. Anyway, I hope you have a fun time, Anne.
