Manuel's Tavern (in the Eagle's Nest)
602 North Highland Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30307
This book club exclusively reads nonfiction works with themes so crazy they couldn’t be fiction--like Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, or The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. We read important works to better understand our place in history as well as current events. We tackle taboo subjects through books including race, income, and religious beliefs. If you want to wrestle with topics you don’t normally get to discuss at home, this is the group for you.
The You Can't Make This Stuff Up Book Club meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.
Book Club Liaison: Patty Durand
