Ted Van Alst, "Sacred Smokes"

Ted Van Alst will be at The Book Cellar to talk about his new book Sacred Smokes!


About Sacred Smokes:

Growing up in a gang in the city can be dark. Growing up Native American in a gang in Chicago is a whole different story. This book takes a trip through that unexplored part of Indian Country, an intense journey that is full of surprises, shining a light on the interior lives of people whose intellectual and emotional concerns are often overlooked. This dark, compelling, occasionally inappropriate, and often hilarious linked story collection introduces a character who defies all stereotypes about urban life and Indians. He will be in readers' heads for a long time to come.

About Ted Van Alst:

Ted is an associate professor and the chair of Native American Studies at the University of Montana, is a creative editor for Transmotion, an online journal of postmodern indigenous studies. His fiction and photography have been widely published. He is also the editor of The Faster Redder Road: The Best
UnAmerican Stories of Stephen Graham Jones (UNM Press).
