Alexie on YouTube re DIARY

This is a must-view clip on YouTube. It was filmed November 3rd, when Alexie was in Texas for the Texas Book Festival. He was on a panel of YA writers. (Thanks to Jeff Berglund at Northern Arizona University for pointing to this.)



Debbie, thanks so much for posting the U-Tube appearance of Alexie. It was terrific. I may have already mentioned that I read your work not just because you often post to LM_NET but because I briefly taught @ the Noli Indian School, of the Saboba Band of Luiseno Indians in San Juacinto, CA. Many Indian children/adolescents have great potential but the milieu @ Noli was too frightening to continue.

Hearing Sherman Alexie talk was like being back reading the book again. I wanted more. And hearing his voice made the book even more real. Amidst the pain of losing 7 people in your family in one year, was an irrepressible joy for learning and being alive.

Interesting video. I agree with the character in the book. You have to read any piece of information three times in order to remember the key points of it. :)
