I will be leading a history walk this Saturday, 1st September, which will explore Manchester as depicted in novels in the 19th and 20th centuries. It will begin from the main entrance to Manchester Cathdral at 11am and last two hours. It will finsh outside Manchester Central Reference Library .
The walk will look at how Manchester has appeared in novels such as Shabby Tiger and Fame is the Spur by Howard Spring, Resurrection Road by Millie Toole, Slavery by Bart Kennedy and The Angel Stone by Livi Michael as well as a number of others.
Howard Spring wrote in Shabby Tiger that ‘there is no such city as Manchester,” meaning that the city is as much a city of the imagination as it as of day to day to reality. In this walk I will be exploring at how novelists have imagined Manchester.”
The walk costs £8 and places can be booked by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
