Reservation Blues by Sherman Alexie
Discussion leader: Caryn Miriam-Goldberg
We finish our Fall series Urban Indians: Native American Writers of the 1990s with a novel by Sherman Alexie, a member of the Spokane tribe. When a blues musician passes his legendary guitar to Thomas Builds-the-Fire, a magical odyssey begins as Thomas and his all-Indian band ride their rock-and-roll dreams to the reservation bars and beyond. Copies of the book are available at the library. Please join us for a fascinating discussion.
