Prolific, hilarious, heartbreaking author Sherman Alexie was scheduled to go on a long and busy book tour this year to promote his latest work, You Don't Have to Say You Love Me, which Amber Cortes called "an incredibly honest, multi-genre memoir about his complicated grief for his late mother, Lillian." In an open letter on Facebook, he spoke honestly about the impact the book and the tour was having on him. Bottom line is, this is one of the few events featuring Alexie that doesn't seem to be cancelled. It's a celebration of the 10th anniversary edition of his National Book Award-winning, New York Times best-selling, memoir-adjacent novel Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.
