The Pen/Faulkner Award-winning bestselling warrior of words, Sherman Alexie (War Dances, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian) returns to Brookline with a book chock-full of new and selected stories that will make you holler with joy.

We regret to say that the event with Sherman Alexie at the Coolidge Corner Theatre has sold out.
