Sherman Alexie is going to be near D.C. next week! He spoke at the SCBWI Conference in L.A. this year, but I couldn't go, so this is my chance. Anyone want to join me?

DescriptionNovelist, poet and filmmaker Sherman Alexie, author most recently of the National Book Award winning young adult novel "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian," will receive this year’s Mason Award and read selections from his work.
If you need an enthusiastic Alexie introduction, I blogged about him three times. I'll be bringing my copies of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Reservation Blues, and Flight. And hoping that they're selling all his poetry books.
