Booked at the Baker Village Books Presents:

An Evening with Sherman Alexie

Join us as we welcome Pacific Northwest favorite Sherman Alexie back to Bellingham to present his first children’s book, Thunder Boy Jr.

Thunder Boy Jr. is named after his dad, but he wants a name that’s all his own. Just because people call his dad Big Thunder doesn’t mean he wants to be Little Thunder. He wants a name that celebrates something cool he’s done, like Touch the Clouds, Not Afraid of Ten Thousand Teeth, or Full of Wonder. But just when Thunder Boy Jr. thinks all hope is lost, he and his dad pick the perfect name, a name that is sure to light up the sky. National Book Award winner Sherman Alexie’s lyrical text and Caldecott Honor winner Yuyi Morales’s striking and beautiful illustrations celebrate the special relationship between father and son.

Sherman Alexie is a poet, short story writer, novelist, and performer. His works of fiction include the National Book Award-winning The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time IndianReservation Blues, and The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven. In Thunder Boy Jr., Sherman’s debut picture book, illustrated by Caldecott Honor-winner Yuyi Morales, he celebrates the special relationship between father and son. A Spokane/Coeur d’Alene Indian, Sherman grew up in Wellpinit, Washington, on the Spokane Indian Reservation. He now lives in Seattle with his family. Like Thunder Boy Jr., Sherman was named for his father.

Village Books is proud to present Sherman Alexie in partnership with the Mount Baker Theatre as part of our Booked at the Baker series.
