The group meets every month to discuss a specific book (fiction or nonfiction). Post-high school adults on the spectrum are welcome to attend the meetings, whether or not they have finished the book selected for the meeting. Books for the currently planned meetings are:

  • June 9: Go Ask Alice by Beatrice Sparks
  • July 14: Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots by Deborah Feldman
  • August 11: A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel by Amor Towles
  • September 8: The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

CODE OF CONDUCT: This book club is intended for post-high school adults on the spectrum who are able to independently participate in group discussions without the assistance of a caretaker.

Participants at AANE events are expected to act respectfully toward other participants and group facilitators. AANE reserves the right to deny admission to and/or ask individual participants to leave an event. For more information see FAQS. If you have any questions, please contact nancy.schwartz@aane.org.

Please register by Friday, June 6, 2020
