Grant Petersen is coming to Powell’s for a Book Related Appearance on May 12, at 2pm. There will be a ride afterwards.
Grant’s book is controversial, he says, but I will bet <a small amount of money or art I can do quickly> that it boils down to “bicycling is not an extreme activity. ” That thesis could get some people into uncomfortable territory, though.
One of the things I enjoy about Grant’s writing is the wordplay – not puns or double entendres (he tries to make his writing as single-entendre as possible), but just playing with words for the fun of it, and the mental excercise. Writing with no “e” (I mis-said: “without 5th unit”), for example, which is why I’m looking forward to getting the bookmark.
Bafflingly, Powell’s doesn’t allow linking directly to events. They just pop up in a lightbox over the calendar. Book Link: Just Ride
