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 !

Child 44 — Tom Rob Smith

Book cover for Tom Rob Smith's Child 44 in the South Manchester, Chorlton, and Didsbury book groupStalin's Soviet Union is a paradise for its workers, providing for all of their needs. One day the body of a dead boy is found on the railway lines outside Moscow, hit by a train. The boy's father claims he was murdered and his body was cut up by a madman. But he must be mistaken, because Soviet citizens live free from the fear of ordinary crime and criminals.

This week's book is Tom Rob Smith's Child 44 and we'll be meeting at The Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury.
