Tennessee Next Chapter Book Clubs

Some time ago, I wrote about the Next Chapter Book Clubs. 
These book clubs are for  older adolescents/young adults with autism, down syndrome or other developmental challenges. 
I was excited to see that there is now a book
club in Nashville (age 17 and up) and I asked the coordinator of the Middle Tennessee book clubs which books the club members enjoyed:
“One of our book clubs just finished Devin and the Greedy Ferret by Leo Kennedy!  Some of the other books that have been big hits are Mr. Poppers Penguin's, Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and Treasure Island-anything with a movie that can be watched at the end is very popular!
The group that read Devin and the Greedy Ferret enjoyed it and were very impressed with who the author was-one of the participants had had a children's book self-published several years ago so she particularly thought it was pretty cool!”
There is a Nashville Next Chapter Book Club that meets each Tuesday night at the Starbucks Café in Target on White Bridge Road. If you’re interested in joining or starting a book club in the Middle Tennessee area, contact the Arc of Williamson County.
