LGBTQ Book Club

Manuel's Tavern
602 North Highland Avenue, NE
Atlanta, Georgia 30307

Talk about stories told by LGBTQ+ authors from all genres and eras. The goal of this book club is to make our reading list as diverse as the queer community itself so we can all feel connected. If you are looking for a group to laugh, cry, shout, and roll your eyes with, then pull up a chair and have a seat.

The LGBTQ Book Club meets at Manuel's Tavern on the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m.

Book Club Liaison: Abby Williams

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