NAU and the Flagstaff Public Library are kicking off a new citywide book club, Flagstaff Reads, designed to engage local residents in conversations using a common book and the themes it inspires.
Based on the same model that connects new NAU students to their campus and community, Flagstaff residents are invited to participate in activities that tie the selected book to local musicians, art exhibitions, films, discussions, writing workshops and other relevant arts, science and cultural programs.
The first selection, the New York Times bestseller 'The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian,' is Sherman Alexie's semiautobiographical tale of self-discovery that recounts the trials of a Native American teenager on and off the Spokane Indian Reservation as he learns to embrace his heritage and to take control of his life.
Residents can pick up a free copy of the book at the Flagstaff Library, while supplies last, in exchange for four non-perishable food items. Book club kits also are available at the library for check out.
