The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has announced that writer and filmmaker Sherman Alexie's Forum presentation Wednesday, April 19, has been moved from Schofield Auditorium to W.L. Zorn Arena.
Reserved seating will be duplicated on the floor of Zorn Arena.
Alexie's presentation, titled "Killing Indians: Myths, Lies and Exaggerations," will begin at 7:30 p.m. and be followed by a question-and-answer session and a reception.
A strong voice of the American Indian community best known for writing the award-winning 1998 film "Smoke Signals," Alexie has been described as "one of the major lyric voices of our time" (The New York Times Book Review).
Admission is $7 for the public, $5 for those age 62 and older and UW-Eau Claire faculty or staff, or $3 for those age 17 and younger and UW-Eau Claire students. Tickets are available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727 or (800) 949-UWEC. Tickets also will be sold at the door.
The Forum is made possible by student funds allocated by the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
