“The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian”

Sunday, April 23, 2023, from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m., in the Heritage Room.

Tuesday, April 25, 2023, from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m., via Zoom.

The Banned Book Club discusses The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie. As noted on Wikipedia, “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is a first-person narrative novel by Sherman Alexie, from the perspective of a Native American teenager, Arnold Spirit Jr., also known as ‘Junior’, a 14-year-old promising cartoonist. The book is about Junior’s life on the Spokane Indian Reservation and his decision to go to a nearly all-white public high school away from the reservation. The graphic novel includes 65 comic illustrations that help further the plot.”

The Anderson Branch of the Public Library is trying to reserve these books, but they are in high demand, so a copy will also be available at the church.

To discuss the book, attend at one of the dates and times noted above. For the Zoom session, the Zoom link will be sent out the day of the meeting to the Banned Book Club mailing list.
