Didsbury Book Group

We talk about them too ! If you like to talk about what you've read, then please join us — new members are very welcome. We meet at the Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury around 8 pm.

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.

We've found ourselves unexpectedly popular over recent months and so — regretfully — we're not accepting new members at the moment. This will change, so please do come back to this page periodically.

This week's book is P G Wodehouse's Thank You, Jeeves and we'll be meeting at The Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury.

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.
