Looking forward to reading this guy’s poetry

Toledo-Lucas County Public Library and The Blade’s Authors! Authors! series kicked off two nights ago with a dynamic presentation by Native American author Sherman Alexie. Though I’d wanted to hear about his writing process, I was glad to have been present for his lesson on demythologizing Native American culture, history, spirituality. There’s no doubt we need that. Much of his message was cloaked in humor — this man is funny and brilliant. Didn’t have to look hard, though, for the pain and sadness. Great writer, fabulous stand-up comedian, wonderful storyteller.

Really looking forward to reading this guy’s poetry.
