TAG’s Autism Book Club is a neurodiversity-positive place for members to read, share and discuss books written by, for, and (sometimes) about autistic people. If you are interested in reading more about autism and neurodiversity together with a group who shares your interest, the Autism Book Club welcomes you. Autistic people, professionals, students, and parents are all welcome to participate in this group. We meet on the FIRST WEDNESDAY of every month at Malaprops Bookstore in downtown Asheville. Book club members receive 10% off on their Autism Book Club purchase at Malaprops. (Ask for the book club discount at the register. )
The Autism Book Club is also a Facebook Group. For more information go here: Autism Book Club.
We will NOT be reading, or discussing: about causes and cures, about treatment and intervention, about epidemics or tsunamis as these terms are used to refer to people. We WILL be reading: novels, memoirs, histories, anthologies, manga, and other. If these interest you, please join us.
