Hit with sexual harassment claims, Sherman Alexie declines literary prize

Alexie, one of the country's best known Native American writers, was chosen for the Carnegie Medal and a $5,000 prize by the American Library Association for his nonfiction book about his mother, You Don't Have to Say You Love Me: A Memoir. The association plans to hand out a slate of awards at its annual conference in June.

In a statement issued Friday the association wrote, "We acknowledge [Alexie's] decision and will not award the Carnegie nonfiction medal in 2018."
