Green Reads Book Club

Manuel's Tavern
602 Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307
(Parking is availble across the street in the lot adjacent to Midtown Cleaners & Laundry)

Green Reads 2.0 is an environmentally-themed book club. We will read and reflect on literature about climate activism, change, and history. Also, conservation and preservation, environmentalism, and green infrastructure. In addition to those essential topics, we will occasionally read biographies or delve into Climate Fiction (Cli-Fi).

Starting in February, the Green Reads Book Club will meet at Manuel's Tavern on the third Tuesday of every month at 6:30 PM.

*November's meeting will be on the second Tuesday of the month to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday.

Book Club Liaison: Liza Mueller
