Antrim Eclectic Book Club will meet Thursday, June 22, from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m., at the James A. Tuttle Library, 45 Main St. in Antrim.

Participants will discuss Sherman Alexie’s “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.” Sixty illustrations accompany this  tale of a Native teenager who chooses to leave his reservation in order to attend a nearly all-white high school. Frequently challenged by aspiring censors, this memoir examines teenage drugs and sexuality.

Possible discussion questions include in what sense Junior (the novel’s protagonist) is a “part-time Indian,” how Junior’s ambition to be a famous cartoonist conflicts with his membership in his Native community, how satisfying and realistic the novel’s ending is and what messages Alexie is conveying.
