Join STAR volunteer Sue Guben for Next Chapter Book Club. STARability is proud to be the only affiliate of the Next Chapter Book Club in Southwest Florida for people with intellectual disabilities.
The international program of Next Chapter Book Club offers community-based book clubs for adolescents and adults with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, and other intellectual and developmental disabilities. The participants (including some who cannot read) love books for the same reasons most people do: They enjoy being transported to different worlds where they meet interesting characters and learn about exciting new topics. Taking that journey with a group of friends makes it even more delightful and fun. For participants of all reading abilities, Next Chapter Book Club promotes imagination, education, concentration, comprehension and critical thinking, vocabulary expansion and more.
Next Chapter Book Club is open to all STARability participants.
