Social Justice Club
This week for our Social Justice Club we’re reading and discussing the book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie. This a first-person narrative novel 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.
If you’d like to join, just register once to receive the Zoom link, and we’ll send it automatically thereafter. You’re welcome to purchase the book yourself but it is not required since the host will read out loud in the group.
In all the following Social Justice Club meetings we’ll continue the book until the end.
