Plainsboro Library Book Club
Our book club is open to all. We aren’t tied to a specific theme, and have read everything from nonfiction, memoirs, thrillers, literary fiction, and even a little bit of horror!
We generally meet every second Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the History Room, though check the website just in case there’s been a rare change in the schedule.

|Bestselling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to take his future into his own hands, Junior leaves his troubled school on the rez to attend an all-white farm town high school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.
Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is based on the author’s own experiences, coupled with poignant drawings by Ellen Forney that reflect the character’s art, chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live.
