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.

Cancelled due to Plague

Book cover for the cancelled Jed Mercurio's Ascent in the South Manchester, Chorlton, and Didsbury book groupThis meeting is cancelled due to Didsbury's Dreadful Visitation and the Shutting-up of the Fletcher Moss.

We'll be discussing the book, Jed Mercurio's Ascent, online on 02.04.20.

As always, the unread books list and the unreadable books list will provide jaw-dropping levels of insight, pleasure, and solace.
