Follow us:


The Next Chapter Book Club consists of small groups of adolescents and adults with disabilities who meet with volunteer facilitators on a regular basis in the community to "read to learn," socialize, and enjoy participation and discussion that focus on a book each group selects. Groups are currently meeting in Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Knox, Roane, and Sevier counties in Tennessee.

Books with AnyBook Readers

The AnyBook Reader is a pen on which books are recorded so club members who don't read or don't speak can fully participate in the Next Chapter Book Club.  Any book can be recorded - and we would love some volunteers to help record! Especially if you love books and can do voices.
