Children’s Books – CGN talk with Chorlton High students

As part of Chorlton’s Book Festival, 7 CGN members went up to Chorlton High school on Tuesday 21st November to meet with some year 8 pupils to discuss children’s books and fairy tales and how they have changed over the years. Several CGN people even took books they had kept from their childhood, and MCC brought a selection of very old books including one which had the Manchester bee depicted in it.

Everyone gained a lot from the session, and conversation flowed easily amongst the generations. We have agreed to meet with the school’s marketing and community office to try and find further ways to bring young and old, and even older, together on a regular basis Lots of students there but no photos (permission problems)
