Walking by foot from Cornwall to London is no mean feat but travel author Charlie Carroll managed it while sleeping rough along the way.
Turning his experiences into a book “No Fixed Abode A Journey Through Homelessness from Cornwall to London”, Charlie is appearing at Sheffield’s Off the Shelf Festival of Words to talk about time on the streets and help The Big Issue in the North raise awareness of homelessness and the work they do.
Charlie will be at Sheffield Cathedral on Monday 28 October where he will talk about his book followed by a discussion about some of the issues raised including homelessness. The discussion will be chaired by The Big Issue in the North.
Charlie Carroll is a writer, musician, teacher and traveller and his first book, On the Edge, combined travel writing with the exploration of social issues.
The event is also a chance for people to buy The Big Issue in the North’s anthology featuring the shortlisted entries from this year’s inaugural Award for Short Fiction.
The anthology is being sold to raise funds for The Big Issue in the North Trust, the charity arm of the magazine which supports homeless vendors directly through advice, support and services.
