. . . would be to set up shop over at the infamous Shakespeare & co. bookshop, at 37 Rue de la Bucherie, 75005, Paris. Which is exactly what we are going to do.
So, if any of you Parisian citizens fancy a spot of poetry dans votre vie, come on over on mercredi le 26 juillet from 12 noon onwards (and probably until 12 midnight as our librarian is a bit of a slave-driver when it comes to manning her books). You’ll be able to borrow poetry in Persian, Spanish, English, Hungarian, Slovenian and German as our collection has been added to by donations from the people and poets we have so far met. They like to give us books. Either that, or they like to watch our poor librarian struggle fitting her expanding library into her rucksack . . . which is now so heavy that she has to lean at a 45 degree angle otherwise she’ll fall over backwards onto the pavement. If you can’t make it to the library tomorrow, never fear, as jeudi sees us jump to the beach, the city beach that is. We are setting up the library on the Paris Plage along the Seine in the morning and then hopping over to the Luxembourg Gardens for an afternoon poetry slot amongst the trees. On y Va!
