My third post for Independent Bookshop Week (July 18th – 25th) is about an indie bookshop that I’ve actually never been to. Not yet, at least.
Southcart Books in Walsall stocks new and secondhand books, including rarities and signed books, and it boasts the town’s largest selection of books by local authors.
In its events room, they hold author readings, book groups, and have even played host to movie crews. But now it needs heroes for its own story.
Southcart’s corner of Walsall is being redeveloped and their shop is being sold. So they’re looking to move to new and bigger premises. To raise the funds needed, they’re running a crowd funding campaign, with rewards of store credit (they post books if you’re not local) and the chance to sponsor a bookshelf for larger pledges.
So, help out a very special indie bookshop by pledging at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/the-southcart-big-move
