Pedaling Through the Pages: A Conversation with Bicycle-Book Authors

Monday, June 29, 2020 at 12:00 PM

Join in on a conversation with two bicycle book authors Larry Finison and Christina Uss as they discuss their work in researching and writing about the cultural, historical, and inspiring aspects of the bicycle. These two authors represent two very different approaches to bicycling literature; historical non-fiction and children's books.

Larry Finison comes with an historical lens as he details his research and explorations of Boston's bicycling history with his books Boston's Bicycle Craze, 1880-1900: A Story of Race, Sport, and Society and Boston's Twentieth Century Bicycling Renaissance: Cultural Change on Two Wheels. And Christina Uss remembers the joys of bicycling as a kid in her book The Adventures of a Girls Called Bicycle, about an introverted 12-year-old girl learning to make friends by riding her bike from Washington, D.C. to San Francisco.

Please join us for an hour long lunchtime workshop to hear stories from the other side of the page about the research and discovered voices that bring bicycling, both fiction and non-fiction, to life. The authors will read from their works, talk about the writing process, and answer questions you'll bring about bicycling as told through the pages of a book.

Please RSVP below and we'll have Zoom-in details sent your way!
