Book Club

This month’s book is Playing and Reality by D. W. Winnicott.

Book club meets up once every two months in Manchester to discuss the current book, and thoughts around play and games in general. There is normally the opportunity for a cheeky tipple afterwards as well. If you would like to attend in person, or have any suggestions for future books, please get in touch with Nic.

Details about our past meetings and events can be found here.
