Did you know that the 18 to 25 June is Independent Bookshop Week? Bookshops throughout the UK and Ireland are lining up events to celebrate. New Street Author, Dawn Abigail, was keen to get involved.
“My local bookshop is a real asset for the community. So when I heard they were looking for poets to perform, I was pleased to be able to help out.”
Dawn will be performing at The Bookshop on the Green’s poetry event on Thursday 23 June. Located at the heart of Bournville, The Bookshop on the Green is Birmingham’s only independent bookshop. The event starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £3 and can be booked in advance at: Bournville Hub.
