So folks, the London library installation is on. Go go go!
An excerpt from our onsite report for Radio Ruigoord at Landjuweel on August 13th
This band rocked. We will try and find their audio we recorded at Landjuweel too
The noises we recorded coming from this tent sounded interesting also!
These Dutch people eh? A sense of humour in all weathers
And as we promised back in our Barcelona post, now that we have a more stable environment (i.e. not in a tent in a field in Holland somewhere - though we are still somewhere in Holland we might add) here are the pictures from our installation of the library at Hibernian books . . . in Barcelona. Last week. Wow. It seems like last year after all the Ruigoord radio, mud and mess. And with our additional Landjuweel new library members, it seems our current Library Membership total has now risen to. . . tan tan ta raaah . . . where is the trumpet we recorded when we need it . . . 139. Can we make it to 140 fresh poetry souls? Very likely actually, since don’t forget, this week we are heading on over to The Poetry Society Cafe at 22 Betterton Street, London, where we will be installed, library, librarian, and likely a dash of mud, from 2pm onwards on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 16 - 18th August. Do join us. We think you’ll like it.

The owner of this haircut has left a comment on our blog re their library banishment. The haircut is still banned. They are our rules. But this does mean we can interpret them. So. Banned member in Barcelona, your haircut is banned. You are not. Feel free to make your way over to our upcoming London installation where your library membership is still valid
