Sherman Alexie offers humor and commentary on banned books

Acclaimed Indian novelist Sherman Alexie spoke to audiences at Fresno State last month, in a commentary infused with humor about the ineffectiveness of book-banning efforts. “It’s really hilarious to me that people will go to such lengths to get certain books banned, only to get the opposite response in terms of sales.” More coverage of his talk is on The Know.
