CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS ~ EVENT OVERVIEW:  Sherman Alexie, Bestselling Author will Present his New Hardcover Memoir You Don't Have to Say You Love Me.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Sherman Alexie is the Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, the PEN/Malamud Award for Short Fiction, a PEN/Hemingway Citation for Best First Fiction, and the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature.  He is a Poet, Short Story Writer, Novelist, and Performer.  A Spokane/Cour d’Alene Indian, Alexie grew up in Wellpinit, Washington, on the Spokane Indian Reservation.  He’s been an urban Indian since 1994 and lives in Seattle with his family.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  A searing, deeply moving memoir about family, love, loss, and forgiveness from the critically acclaimed, bestselling National Book Award-winning author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.

Family relationships are never simple. But Sherman Alexie's bond with his mother Lillian was more complex than most. She plunged her family into chaos with a drinking habit, but shed her addiction when it was on the brink of costing her everything. She survived a violent past, but created an elaborate facade to hide the truth. She selflessly cared for strangers, but was often incapable of showering her children with the affection that they so desperately craved. She wanted a better life for her son, but it was only by leaving her behind that he could hope to achieve it. It's these contradictions that made Lillian Alexie a beautiful, mercurial, abusive, intelligent, complicated, and very human woman. When she passed away, the incongruities that defined his mother shook Sherman and his remembrance of her. Grappling with the haunting ghosts of the past in the wake of loss, he responded the only way he knew how: he wrote. The result is a stunning memoir filled with raw, angry, funny, profane, tender memories of a childhood few can imagine, much less survive. An unflinching and unforgettable remembrance, You Don't Have to Say You Love Me: A Memoir is a powerful, deeply felt account of a complicated relationship.
