Tell a story

Suddenly you see a little van with a sign on the roof. You decide to take a closer look and see that it’s a travelling bookstore. You buy a book from a Portuguese writer and experience a wonderful day at the beach…

Just a story what can happen if you run across this van. A travelling bookstore called Tell a story. This bookstore makes Portuguese literature more accessible to tourist. The story behind this van is to create a place for visitors where Portuguese literature is still important. Besides the importance of the literature it also is a new cool way to bring books to people instead of getting people to books.
