Imaginary Book Club is a community of book lovers that supports readers in their pursuit of the perfect book, and in sharing their love of reading with others so they can feel united and share their passion together. Imaginary Book Club readers are enthusiastic book-philes, who identify as readers, whether they pick up one book a month or fifteen.
Bestselling author Sherman Alexie is a native of Washington State and grew up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on that same reservation. Alexie has shared that the story is not unlike his own experiences growing up. It’s a great exploration of contemporary teen years, and a great read for fans of YA and contemporary fiction.
