Sarah-Clare Conlon, Literature Editor
Catalog Bookshop

Bookshop on a bike, selling independent magazines and books covering the alphabet from art to travel, plus greeting cards, stationery and more… “Striving to maintain the relationship between people and the printed word.” Find Peter and his Christiania cargo bike around All Saints Park, a hop, skip and a bunnyhop from Manchester Poetry Library. A more permanent outlet in the form of a container may well be incoming… watch this space (or keep an eye out on the Literature Guide)!
