NCB Features Local Authors
NCB is proud to feature the works of local authors. Among the many events we are planning to host in our great space, we look forward to hosting book talks and author visits. Please check back for our event calendar, coming in the summer of 2022.
ChemBro is about Bernard’s personal journey battling cancer while simultaneously training for his fifth degree black belt, and the appearance at Next Chapter Books is something he’s been looking forward to for quite some time.
“Being that ChemBro was released during the pandemic, I didn’t have any opportunities to make personal appearances,” he explains, “so I’m incredibly excited to finally have a meet and greet. Getting to do one at a place that’s community oriented, like Next Chapter Books, makes it even better.”
