Yes, it's true! National Book Award winning author Sherman Alexie is coming to Corning NY on April 8 for a 7:30 p.m. performance at The Corning Museum of Glass. The winter of 2014 has played havoc across the country and made no exception to The Rockwell's two previously scheduled Sherman Alexie performances. According to Alexie's agency, he is entirely committed to visit Corning and was highly disappointed with the weather and ill-health interruptions. Sherman Alexie is delighted to secure the April 8 date in Corning.

All tickets for the previously scheduled performance have been refunded. Tickets for the original performance will not be honored for the April 8th performance at The Corning Museum of Glass.

If you have not already done so, please purchase your new tickets to attend the April 8th performance.

From growing up on the Spokane Reservation in Washington to becoming a New York Times best-selling author and screenwriter, Sherman Alexie has had a unique pathway in life and loves to tell his animated stories.

The presentation will close with a Q&A and book signing. Buy your Sherman Alexie book in The Rockwell Museum Store in advance or at the event.
