Celebrated Native American poet, author and filmmaker Sherman Alexie discusses his work with SUNY Oneonta students during a class in Hunt Union. Alexie will present SUNY Oneonta’s Mills Distinguished Lecture, “Without Reservations: An Urban Indian’s Comic, Poetic & Highly Irreverent Look at the World,” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, in the college’s Alumni Fieldhouse.<br />
     Alexie’s appearance at SUNY Oneonta is the culmination of the “common read,” a new college initiative to enhance first-year student engagement and further infuse cultural literacy into academics by asking all incoming freshmen to read a diversity-related book, which will be discussed in courses across several disciplines this fall. A “common read” is akin to a book club, in which participants all read the same literary work for the purpose of critically discussing it. <br />
