Cover to Cover Open Book - June 1, 2007

Sherman Alexie visits with Amelia Gonzalez and talks about his latest book, Flight. Sherman Alexie’s first novel in ten years is the hilarious and tragic portrait of an orphaned Indian boy who travels back and forth through time in a violent search for his true identity.

Sherman Alexie is one of our most gifted and accomplished storytellers and a treasured writer of huge national stature. His first novel since Indian Killer is a powerful, fast, and timely story of a troubled foster teenager—a boy who is not a "legal" Indian because he was never claimed by his father - who learns the true meaning of terror.

He's in town to talk about his book as well as speak at the Annual National Conference for Race & Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE) to address the resurgence of racist incidents in higher education. The NCORE conference is taking place this week. For more information, you can go to www.ncore.ou.edu.
