UBC Faculty of Education Community Book Club Event

Join the UBC Community Book Club in reading, The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie. This novel is “heartbreaking, funny and beautifully written”. It chronicles the contemporary adolescent experience of one young Native American boy who is living and learning in worlds that are far apart yet so connected. Sherman Alexie challenges readers to (re)define their understandings of Aboriginal/Native American realities.

This book club event focuses a prominent theme within the novel. This event will begin with a guest speaker followed by a discussion of the book. This event takes place at a local area high school.

Gender, Bullying and Harassment in Schools
Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Meyer (California Polytechnical State Univ.)
Thursday November 14th   6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Point Grey Secondary School (5350 East Blvd off Kerrisdale)
