South Manchester Book Group

If you enjoy talking about books over a quiet drink, then please join us — new members are very welcome. We normally meet at the Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury around 8 pm but whilst the contagion lasts and we REMAIN INDOORS we'll become a virtual  bookgroup and meet online.

Drop us a line on the Contact Us form and we'll add you to our mailing list and send you invitations to our online meetings. We always reply, so if you don't hear from us please check your spam folder.

There's a meeting every fortnight, but you don't have to come to them all. It's dead simple; choose a book you like the sound of, read it (or even part of it) beforehand and turn up* with a few ideas and money for beer / wine / flirtinis. It's all very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis.

Our reading list, past, present, and future, appears here and there's a shorter version of upcoming books here.

* Do not turn up — REMAIN INDOORS !

how does this work. Do I need to buy and read the book before hand? My first time so please handle with care :)

Hi Di,

Basically we'll discuss the book on the night, so ideally we'll all have bought or borrowed a copy and read it by then.

That said, we're pretty laid back and it's not uncommon for some of us not to have finished the book completely - unfortunately that does create the problem of hearing spoilers through the discussion!

It's a friendly group and you'd be more than welcome to come along and check us out any time.
