Usd To Host Author Sherman Alexie

SAN DIEGO: University of San Diego’s College of Arts and Sciences Humanities Center, and Warwick’s Books, proudly present Sherman Alexie, National Book Award winner and bestselling author of The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian as he discusses his new memoir You Don't Have to Say You Love Me.

When his mother passed away at the age of 78, Sherman Alexie responded the only way he knew how: he wrote. The result is this stunning memoir. Featuring 78 poems, 78 essays and intimate family photographs, Alexie shares raw, angry, funny, profane, tender memories of a childhood few can imagine--growing up dirt-poor on an Indian reservation, one of four children raised by alcoholic parents. Throughout, a portrait emerges of his mother as a beautiful, mercurial, abusive, intelligent, complicated woman. You Don't Have to Say You Love Me is a powerful account of a complicated relationship, an unflinching and unforgettable remembrance.
