Sign Up for Book Club

The NCS Book Club offers a lively and relaxed discussion about the selected book and themes addressed in the book. All are welcome, including non-members and those who have not read the book. Book Club is hosted the last Tuesday monthly at 6:30 p.m. at local venues around Nashville. We are honored to introduce our 2023 NCS Author Ambassador, Julian R. Vaca. Julian will be a guest at the NCS Book Club on September 26, as we discuss his debut novel, Memory Index. The sequel, The Recall Paradox, publishes in 2023. Click here to learn more about Julian.
