The Future of a Physical Bookshop in Wood Green(ish)
Tuesday 29th January –  from 6.30pm
In the Big Green Bookshop

After the announcement of the closure of the Big Green Bookshop in order to take the business online, I have been talking to a lot of people about the forming of a Co-operative to found an even more community based book shop within the area.
This is a meeting to decide the next steps.
The topics I would most like to discuss are;

  • Financing the project. Investments, grants and fund raising
  • Premises. I hope to lay out – in general terms – what I feel we need in a physical shop
  • People skills and volunteers.
  • Spreading the word. The more people shouting, the louder the shout

If we have time we will discuss any other matters.
I don’t know how many people will attend this meeting, so please arrive as close to 6.30 as you can.
If you are interested in the project, but cannot attend the meeting please send an email to

It is possible that this will be the last newsletter from the physical Big Green Bookshop. If it is, you might want to save it somewhere safe, in case it becomes valuable in time.

See you all soon
