            Our Adults Group is for older members of the Aspergers autistic community and those with other similar neurodivergent profiles.

            Book Club: March



            About the AV Book Club

            If you enjoy reading fiction and would like to have an incentive to read more, expand your reading list, and to meet with others to share your thoughts and insights and to hear others' perspectives, consider joining the AV Book Club for your next literary adventure. We read and discuss work by autistic authors as well as non-autistic authors.


            This month, we will discuss Strong Female Character by Fern Brady


            A book cover with a square window Description automatically generated


            'This is a book about how being a woman gets in the way of people's expectation of what autism should look like and, equally, how being autistic gets in the way of people's expectations of what a woman should look like.'

            Strong Female Character is a game-changing memoir on sexism and neurodiversity. Fern Brady uses her voice as a neurodivergent, working-class woman from Scotland to bring issues such as sex work, abusive relationships and her time spent in teenage mental health units to the page. It will take a sledgehammer to the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope which is mistakenly applied to neurodiverse women. It will also look at how her lack of regard for social expectations ultimately meant she surpassed any limitations of what a Scottish working-class woman can do.


            How to access this book


            Cost: $5 for AV members, $10 for non-members.

            Become an AV member today to access discounted tickets for groups and events, members-only programs and interest groups, and to support all the wonderful work our volunteers and staff team do for our community.
