Event Description

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.

Sarah wrote a journal throughout this time, which has now been published. So now you can read this uplifting, funny inspiring story in her new book "The Bookshop that Floated Away".

Sarah will be at Big Green Books on Tuesday April 29th to talk about her adventures, sharing some great stories and generally bigging up books, bookshops and a free spirited attitude to life.

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