Sherman Alexie visited BookPeople of Moscow for an author event for his book Thunder Boy Jr. in July 2016. He was pretty happy to see The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian on our mural on the back of the store! Maybe that's why he and his wife bought lots of books at BookPeople while they were in town...or maybe it's because they love indie bookstores. Either way, we love Sherman.
