Join Carolyn for a book club that discusses young adult books with challenging subject matter. The book club is welcome to adults who wish to read something short with substance. This month we are reading Sherman Alexie’s Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.
In The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Junior is a Native American who transfers to an all-white school from his reservation. He faces adversity from his medical problems, his new school, and his family for transferring off the rez. His loves cartooning, and tries to use his sense of humor to make the best of a difficult situation. Can he persevere?
