First meeting of the Atlanta Social Science Tavern — Polyamory Double Whammy at Manuel’s Tavern on 6/5/14 at 7pm

Inaugural Social Science Tavern: Polyamory


Thursday June 5, 2014


7 – 9 pm


Manuel’s Tavern, 602 North Highland Ave. NE, Atlanta


Social science nerds unite! Join us for the inaugural event in our new social science tavern series. Each month we’ll be gathering for drinks, discussion and games, with a different topic or speaker for each event.


For our first event we’ve got a polyamory double header, with three recently published authors on polyamory: Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert, authors of More Than Two, and Elisabeth Sheff, of The Polyamorists Next Door. They will talk about their books and take questions from the audience. After a quick break to get fresh drinks, everyone who sticks around can play Polyamory Jeopardy—and the winning team gets a free pitcher of beer!


Join us at Manuels to have a delicious dinner, help kick off the Atlanta Poly Weekend, and hear about the exciting new developments in the world of books on polyamory. Please RSVP at

Dr. Elisabeth Sheff, PhD, CASA, CSE

One of a handful of global experts on polyamory and the foremost international expert on children in polyamorous families, Dr. Elisabeth Sheff has studied gender and
families of sexual minorities for the last 16 years. Sheff’s television appearances include CNN, and the National Geographic, and she has given more than 20 radio, podcast, print, and television interviews with sources from Radio Slovenia to National Public Radio, the Sunday London Times to the Boston Globe and Newsweek. By emphasizing research methodology and findings in her discussions, Dr. Sheff presents the kind of public intellectualism that encourages audience members to think critically regarding gender, sexualities, and families.
