Sherman Alexie on the Colbert Report

(via TBTL, who are in the midst of their TBTL-athon)

Author Sherman Alexie has parlayed his Colbert Report appearance into real fame, as he’s booked on TBTL today. With Colbert he discussed his opposition to a digital media that doesn’t protect authorial ownership. With Luke Burbank, today at noon, he gets into “the plan he’s hatched for monetizing art in the digital age, and how (on a totally unrelated note) pickup basketball is the only way for grown men to express their love to each other.” [UPDATE: Twitter just sent me this link to three new poems by Alexie.
