Literature and Laughter for Ladies is a book club in Manchester, just for the ladies.
We hold a monthly book club night (generally in the Northern Quarter) but it’s not just about the books! We run lots of social events from library tours, theatre and cinema trips, book-related days out and coffee mornings - with a few random events thrown in for good measure!
If you love books and are new to Manchester, want to make new friends or just get out of the house and do something a bit different, come along and join us. You'll read some great books along the way!
Please note that there is a one-off £2 fee to join the group.
Once the Meetup hosting fee (approx. £140 per year) and any other ad hoc expenses have been covered, your £2 joining fee will be donated to Emmeline's Pantry Parlour, a food bank for women in Manchester. Along with the fees from the crochet club I run, we have donated £212 to date towards our monthly food bank collection.
We look forward to meeting you.

The small print:
Membership Fee: There is a £2 fee to join the group which is used to cover the Meetup hosting fee (approximately £140 per year).
If you attend a Meetup in the first month of joining, please pay the £2 fee in cash at the event. Otherwise you can use PayPal to pay through the membership link on this page.
If you haven’t paid within 8 weeks of joining, I will assume you have decided the group is not for you and are happy to be unsubscribed. You are, of course, very welcome to re-join at any time, upon payment of the fee.
RSVP's: Please only sign up to an event if you fully intend to come along, and make sure you add the date to your diary/calendar so you don't forget.
Remember to update your RSVP status if your plans change and you can no longer make it, but wherever possible, no later than 24 hours before the event. This will give someone on the waiting list an opportunity to attend. As is common practice with most Meetup groups, we operate a “3 no-shows and you're out” policy. Ladies who regularly cancel on the day at very short notice may also be deemed as a no-show.
You wouldn’t leave your friends wondering if you were going to show up for a night out, so please remember, we’re the friends you haven’t met yet!
