audience laughing
Sherman Alexie captivated more than 1,400 appreciative readers at the finale of this year’s 2016 Pierce County READS. Some of them watched the show from one of five live streaming locations. Alexie told stories and entertained the audience for about two hours. He had them roaring with laughter and moved to tears as he related events in his life.

If you haven’t yet seen them, check out the series of six short videos of our conversation with Sherman Alexie. His outspoken style makes for interesting viewing.

A collection of blog posts written by library staff also adds depth and background to Alexie’s life and work.

And if you haven’t yet had time to read the five books featured in Pierce County READS, the Pierce County Library System catalog is the place to go for those and other books, as well as audio books and the DVD of his film, “Smoke Signals.”

Proudly presented by Pierce County Library System and The News Tribune.
