This is a past event.

Author Sherman Alexie 

When: Sat., Nov. 19, 11 a.m. 2011
Price: free
Usually one must wait until nightfall to hear from "one of the major lyric voices of our time." The owner of that heavy label (courtesy of The New York Times Book Review) is Sherman Alexie. And a big deal to those who have strict, not-long-after-dark bedtimes is this rare thrill: a daytime books event with Alexie, the author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which won the 2007 National Book Award in Young People's Literature and racked up major time on The New York Times' best-seller list for children's literature. This morning, he separates the real from the make-believe as he talks about his life and his work in fiction, poetry and screenwriting. His talk, titled "The Partially True Story of the True Diary of a Part-Time Indian," starts at 11 a.m. in Yardley Hall at Johnson County Community College (12345 College Boulevard, in Overland Park). 0x000AAdmission is free; call 913-469-8500 or see jccc.edu for details.
