Unlike other book clubs, the Next Chapter Book Club (NCBC) provides adolescents and adults with intellectual challenges the opportunity to read and learn to read, talk about books, and make friends in a fun, community setting. Next Chapter Book Clubs across North America and in Germany meet weekly in local bookstores and cafés to read aloud and discuss books of their choosing. NCBC members range from those who read well to those who cannot read independently.
There are many opportunities to get involved in the NCBC in addition to becoming a book club member. Our book clubs are facilitated by volunteers, hosted by bookstores and cafés in the community, and operated by affiliate organizations that are responsible for overall program implementation at the local level.
