. . . and within twelve hours we’ve found ourselves two places to be installed. First up is Cafe Metropole . . .
where the wonderful Robert agreed we could either take over a corner of his cafe, or take over the entire space where Anagram Books used to live, as they appeared to be moving out just as we arrived to persuade Robert he needed a travelling poetry library in his cafe. So, we’re going to get our very own bookshop space to set up our library and poetry washing line. Yee and Hah as the Royal Grub might say. Not only are we going to be installed at Cafe Metropole, but we also wandered over to Shakespeare & Sons
(yes, a librarian’s work is never done and we do not take lightly our duties!) and got as far as telling the bookstore guy we had a travelling poetry library. He said Yes. ‘But I haven’t said what I am doing yet’ I thought to say. I opened my mouth to say more. Yes he said, before I could say anything else. Then he took the limp posters dangling from my sweaty paws and whacked them up in the front, back and middle windows/doors/walls. Wow! So, we’re in business, the library business, and what a welcome to Prague. Yee and Hah indeed.
So . . . the travelling itinerant poetry librarian and her library will be installed @ Café Metropole, Anny Letenske 18, Vinohrady, Praha 2, on Monday 26th & Tuesday 27th June from 12 noon onwards and @ Shakespeare & Sons, Krymska 12, Vrsovice, Praha, on Wednesday 28th & Thursday 29th June from 12 noon onwards. Come along and join the library and browse our poetry books and poetry washing line of poems, or come along to have a chat about poetry
