We hope everyone had a lovely Easter! We both enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and have returned with new energy and lots of ideas for upcoming events here at The Next Chapter.
We have been so pleased with the turnout at our various events, and are looking forward to hosting more, and are happy for feedback on what sorts of events people are interested in attending.
Upcoming events include:
‘Real Books for Real Men‘ book discussion, Tuesday, April 14th, 6pm. This group meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, is hosted by Bob Leonard, and discusses how literature portrays and impacts the modern American man.
Poetry Slam!, Thursday, April 23rd, 6 pm, in honor of National Poetry Month, this will be a spirited ‘open mic’ -style evening of performance poetry. Bring your best stuff to share. Special guest will be local bard, Joe Plum.
Readers Anonymous Book Club, Thursday April 30th, 6 pm. This group meets the last Thursday of each month, and is a casual gathering of book lovers sharing their latest great reads.
Other events that are in the planning stages include a fresh edition of 30-in-30 with Kate Bearce just in time to stock up on summertime reads; a Fancy Nancy Tea Party for the young ladies, a variety of arts and crafts workshops, some author appearances, and much more. Do you have a great idea for a gathering at The Next Chapter? We are interested in hearing from you!
