South Manchester Book Group

We're a friendly and open reading group, and we share a love of books and discussing them with other people. We meet 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 very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch.

We meet at a pub in Didsbury around 8 pm. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis.

We've become rather popular recently so unfortunately aren't accepting new members just at the moment. But please drop us a line on the Contact Us form and we'll add you to our mailing list.

Our reading list, past, present, and future, appears here and a short version of what we’re reading next is here.

Book cover for D H Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover in the South Manchester, Chorlton, and Didsbury book groupWould you approve of your young sons, young daughters — because girls can read as well as boys — reading this book ? Is it a book you would have lying around your own house ? Is it a book that you would even wish your wife or your servants to read ?
This week's book is D H Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover and we'll be meeting at The Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury.

Please note the change of book. We'll be reading the previous choice, The Immortalists on 21 February 2019.
