Better Lit Book Club

Better Lit Book Club

The Wrecking Bar
292 Moreland Avenue, NE
Atlanta, Georgia 30307

As with the original Good Lit Book Club, we read those contemporary/modern books that are critical darlings, award-winning or long-listed titles. Only better.

The Better Lit Book Club meets at the Wrecking Bar on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.

Unfortunately, this book club is full and not accepting new members. 

Book Club Liaison: Katie Long
