NAT: Sherman Alexie wins National Book Award

No secret of my fondness for the writing and films of Sherman Alexie. His newest novel, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, won the National Book Award this week. Congrats, Sherman!

I posted a video on YouTube (and here and on Facebook) of Alexie reading from the book at the Texas Book Festival. His winning the award certainly must have played a part in skyrocketing visit counts to see my film, but also playing a part were its being picked up by two fine websites, where you can also visit to see the many fine things they have to offer. Check it out at NatiVue TV here and over at the blog American Indians in Children's Literature.

And check out his website here; and also some of the other YouTube videos that have been posted.

And here's a another shot at my film . . .
