Type Rider II: The Tandem Poetry Tour

July 16th, 6:30pm to 7:45pm
Amy Tingle and Maya Stein are riding a tandem bicycle 1400 miles from Boulder, CO to Beloit, WI this July promoting literacy, creativity, and small-town community spirit. They'll be stopping in towns along their route each day to build approximately twenty-five new Little Free Libraries. This project honors Lutie Stearns, the original little free librarian, who retired in 1914 after building over 1400 "books in a box" to help towns without access to printed materials. The pair will also be writing free poetry on their vintage typewriters, give them 1 word and they'll write 2 poems on the spot!
