Are you interested in Manchester history – specifically turn of the 19th century? It was a time of great social and economic upheaval, where fortunes were made, squalor was squalled and people all over the world came to document and comment on the state of the world.

This months session is a continuation of the first group meet up on the 2nd April and will feature an in-depth discussion on the novel Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell.
Four covers
We invite you come join the latest reading group at MadLab. This group will focus on Manchester’s industrial heritage, reading a mixture of fiction, non-fiction and autobiographies.

See what we got up to last time, and join us exploring Manchester of the 1840′s.

This book club is a series of MadLab events about the history of the Northern Quarter, called The Ghosts of St Pauls. This project is supported by an ‘All Our Stories’ grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). All Our Stories, a brand new small grant programme, launched earlier this year in support of BBC Two’s The Great British Story – has been designed as an opportunity for everyone to get involved in their heritage. With HLF funding and support, community groups will carry out activities that help people explore, share and celebrate their local heritage.
