The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian

Chesterfield Community High School teacher, Laurie Messer, was eager to attend the Richmond Forum at University of Richmond to hear author, Sherman Alexie, speak.  Mrs. Messer is teaching his book, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, a National Book Award winner.   The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, tells the story of Junior, a want-to-be cartoonist who leaves school on an Indian Reservation to attend school in a small, farm town, where he is the only Indian, except of course for the school mascot.  Junior’s journey greatly appeals to our students, and Mrs. Messer was excited to get to meet the author, who autographed her copy and the school’s library copy.
