Join the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta Book Club!
Do you enjoy reading German literature? Would you like to get involved in some engaging discussions about books you’ve read? If the answer is ‘yes’ then the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta book club is for you!
Our book club meets once a month and discusses selected German-language books, many of which have an English translation. The discussions are held in both English and German, depending on the text in question and always prove to be lively, engaging and exciting!
