Third Thursday Programming
The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven | 6:30 pm
Join Pierce County Libraries and Sara Ortiz, Native Program Education Manager for Highline Public Schools, for a book discussion around The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven. The book discussion will also carry into the galleries, tying themes from Alexie’s work to the representations of Native people in Western American Art. Featured as 2016’s selected author for the Pierce County READS program, Alexie is an author, poet, and screenwriter who connects readers around the world to the American Indian experience, making them laugh, cry and think through his semi-autobiographical writings. You must be registered to attend this event.
