The Book Barge is coming to Wood Green!

Tuesday April 29th 7.00pm
Sarah Henshaw, owner of the Book Barge in conversation.

I love the Book Barge. Who wouldn't?
Here's the story in a nutshell.
With extraordinary willpower and huge positive attitude and very little help from the bank, Sarah Henshaw opened the Book Barge (a bookshop on a barge!) in 2009. 
As happens to all the best bookshops, money got a bit tight and so in 2011 Sarah decided to travel the canals of the UK for 6 months to raise the profile of the barge, sell some books and essentially survive. She even stopped off in London for a bit during her travels and I was lucky ebnough to spend a lovely afternoon on the barge.
I won't tell you the whole story because you can read about her adventures and philosophy in her uplifting, funny inspiring new book "The Bookshop that Floated Away".
Sarah will be at the bookshop on Tuesday April 29th to talk to Simon about her travels, sharing some great stories and generally bigging up books, bookshops and a free spirited attitude to life.

IT'S FREE to come along and there will be gin (Sarah's favourite tipple) and also less alcoholic beverages.
