What we’re reading: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie; art by Ellen Forney



Junior is a budding cartoonist who leaves his school on the Spokane Indian Reservation to attend an all-white farm town school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.


This book is based on the author’s life experience and has great artwork.


See us at the Children’s Desk to pick up your copy of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Also, please bring suggestions for the next book group selection!
