Our first keynote of the conference and SCBWI is doing it big with Sherman Alexie!
Lin Oliver introduces him as a: poet, short story writer, novelist, and now a writer joining our ranks in children's literature with THE ABSOLUTE TRUE STORY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN.
He's already getting laughs.
Alexie has theories about the friendliness of the people who write for kids. "We were all freaks. The freak freaks."
