Levi Roots. He's a nice man.
He came to the shop on Saturday. This is how we advertised it on Gumtree, and on the Facebook Group, and on the Time Out website, and on our newsletter that we send to our mailing list, and on lecturelist.
This is going to be fun! The Dragon slayer Levi Roots will be joining us at the Big Green Bookshop on Saturday August 9th at 2pm to celebrate with us and sign copies of his fantastic 'Reggae Reggae Cookbook'.
If the weather is good, we'll be having a barbecue from around 1pm and we're hoping to make it a carnival atmosphere in Brampton Park Road, so there'll be loads of stuff happening with a bit of luck.
More news as we make it.
We're just too good to you....
here's a poster which appeared in various haunts around Wood Green
We had a window in for 4 weeks advertising it.
We'd arranged for a wonderful msician to play and we'd arranged a barbecue outside the shop which a chef from a local cafe loked after. We'd put together a great menu, including jerk chicken and reggae reggae burgers, and we'd chosen traditionaly one of the hottest weekends of the year.
It pissed down
But Levi was lovely and despite Wood Green deciding to stay indoors in the dry, he stuck around and met the people that braved it out.
The barbie was still great, and the biggest news of the day was that Andrew, one of our 'regular' customers put his hand in his pockets for the first time since we opened to buy not one, but two helpings of jerk chicken.
The musician S Calli also performed and was brilliant. He's standing in what was our car park, next to the shop, which we've turned intoan outdoor oasis, that people can sit and enjoy the wonderful cosmopolitan atmosphere of Wood Green.
More of S Calli here
but it pissed down.
Which was a shame
and didn't help.
Anyway, onwards and upwards.
We have a new thing on the right of the blog, which lists our events. Hope you like it.
The Bill Drummond event is now fully booked and we've sold all 50 tickets. We might see if we can squeeze in another dozen or so peolple, but i'm really looking forward to it.
