Even if you happened to miss last year’s Community Reads visit by author Sherman Alexie, it isn’t too late to pick up a copy of his award-winning book The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Besides having a great title, this powerful book artfully tells the journey of a Native American boy as he straddles life on the reservation and enrollment at a primarily white high school. We have several very gently used copies of The Absolutely True Diary of Part-Time Indian on our front table. This book appeals to both young adult and adult readers.
We also have copies available of 127 Hours by Aron Ralston, the current Community Reads book. Ralston is the young climber who, after several days spent trapped between a boulder and rock wall, severed his own arm. Please contact the Inyo Council for the Arts for more information regarding the ongoing Community Reads events.
