DESCRIPTION: The Asperger/Autism Network, in partnership with the Nashua Public Library, has created a book discussion group for post-high school adults with an Asperger/autism or related profile.

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. Here at the book selections for the first three book club meetings. Books for future meetings will be selected by the group:

October 7: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

November 4: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Hadden

Each book can be borrowed from the library with a library card for the Nashua Public Library. Library cards may be obtained free-of-charge at the information desk. Book club participants from other towns should make arrangements to borrow this book from their local library.

DISCUSSION GUIDE: Feel free to use this worksheet to guide you while you read “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas. The discussion questions can be found here..

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. Parents and caretakers are welcome to stay nearby in the library, but should not expect to attend the book club discussion.

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.
