Sherman Alexie on campus on March 14th

Author and film director Sherman Alexie will present "Without Reservations:  An Urban Indian's Comic, Poetic, and Highly Irreverent Look at the World" at 7 p.m. on Monday (March 14) in Ives Concert Hall on the Midtown campus. 

A screening of "Smoke Signals," an entertaining film based on one of Alexie's short stories, will take place before the lecture at 5 p.m. in the Warner Hall Lyceum.  A reception and book signing will follow Alexie's presentation in the Warner Lyceum as well. 

Alexie's talk is part of the ongoing Neuwirth Lecture series, which is named for the late Dr. Steven Neuwirth, a professor of English who helped to start the American Studies and Honors programs on campus. 

These events are free and open to the public.  All are encouraged to attend what promises to be an outstanding evening of lively discussion and entertainment.
