Writers at the Wrecking Bar

A Cappella Books presents Writers at the Wrecking Bar, a series of live author interview events showcasing some of the country’s freshest voices in literary and contemporary fiction, presented each month at our neighborhood brewpub. This monthly literary salon includes writers in conversation with an arbiter of Atlanta’s book scene, giving the audience a chance to experience and participate in the Q&A, and get a signed copy of the book. Select events will feature performances by notable local musicians.

Held upstairs in the Marianna Room, Writers at the Wrecking Bar hosts a cash bar with signature cocktails inspired by the books, starting at 7 p.m. The author conversation and book signing follow at 7:30 p.m.
