Sherman Alexie, everybody’s favorite Native American author/poet/YA revolutionary and banned book super-star, not to mention this issue’s MoJo interview subject  will be reading from his new short story collection War Dances at the Women’s Building in San Francisco. After hearing him speak at last year’s New Yorker Festival, I can’t recommend this reading highly enough. If you’re within 100 miles and still on the fence, I’d invite you to reread the excellent title story which ran in the New Yorker this August. Still not sold? What if I told you that tickets were just $8?

That’s a heck of a lot less than it costs to buy on Amazon (though, apparently on his insistence, it’s not even available for the Kindle). Not in SF? Check out Alexie in your city


If you buy a book using the Bookshop link on this page, a small share of the proceeds supports our journalism.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.
