The ATL LGBTQ+ Book Club is a group for Atlanta's LGBTQ+ folks and allies to read queer-themed books and books by queer authors! We aim to have diverse thought-provoking discussions about queer identity, history, and topical issues.

You can find us on meetup at:  ATL LGBTQ Book Club Meet Up or on Facebook at: ATL LGBTQ Book Club Facebook or feel free to reach out to the group facilitator, Shelby, at shelbykurland@gmail.com
