Manchester M20 2RQ

 Group 2:

Tuesdays (Monthly) 7.00-8.30 pm

19 January 2016: Carson McCullers, The Ballad of the Sad Café and Other Stories

Welcome to The Reading Rooms at the Didsbury Parsonage. On this page you will find all you need to know to join us in Group Two: dates of meetings, what to read, etc.

Take part in a discussion of stories, plays and novels by a variety of writers in a beautiful venue, over a cup of tea and cake. Enjoy the multiplicity and richness of perspectives that emerge from sharing the reading experience in a group setting.

Group Two has been formed in order to welcome those readers who wanted to join us but found that Group One has reached its maximum number of participants. We keep our groups to 10 readers at most in order to ensure that everyone has a chance to fully participate in the discussions.

Our first ‘welcome’ meeting will be held on Tuesday January 19th upstairs at The Parsonage (first door on the right at the top of the main staircase). This will be a complimentary session and refreshments and handouts are included. Thereafter, each session will cost £10. We will be reading from The Ballad of the Sad Café and Other Stories by Carson McCullers: this book is available for purchase or to download as pdf online. Please contact me to find out which texts to read, for more information or just for a quick chat to find out how we work:
