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

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
