It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of Sherman Alexie’s appearance at the Mount Baker Theatre scheduled for August 8, 2017. On the advice of his physicians, he is canceling all August appearances and most appearances for the remainder of the year. He has written an open letter that can be found on his website, www.fallsapart.com.
Village Books owners Sarah Hutton, Paul Hanson and Kelly Evert released the following statement on behalf of the Village Books team: “While we’ll miss seeing him and hearing his stories in August, we are tremendously grateful Sherman Alexie has chosen to focus on his health. We look forward to welcoming him back to Bellingham in the very near future. For now, we hope readers will join us in sending our heartfelt best wishes for rest and recovery to Sherman and his family.”
We recognize that many people in the community will wish to convey their well-wishes to Sherman and his wife, Diane. We have arranged to have cards at each register of the stores (both Fairhaven and Lynden) that the public may come in and sign. We will then pass the cards along to the Alexies.
For further questions, please contact the store directly. Refund information is available at the store and on our website.
