The Reading Line has partnered with The Festival of Literary Diversity to offer a free Book Ride in Brampton on April 29, 2018.
A Book Ride is a literary festival on wheels. The Reading Line’s Brampton Book Ride is a social justice focused bicycle ride, in partnership with the Festival of Literary Diversity. The ride will move through portions of the city with stops in key locations where authors talk, read and answer questions from riders and attendees.
At the 2017 Ontario Bike Summit awards, Brampton achieved a bronze status designation, which recognizes a community that has launched several initiatives to promote a cycling culture. In recent years, the city has made investments in building a bicycle-friendly community and championing bicycling as a safe, healthy means of recreation and transportation.
The route will begin at South Fletcher’s Library and continue to downtown Brampton thanks to support from the Region of Peel. Along the way, local writers and authors who have appeared at the Festival of Literary Diversity will read from their books or perform poetry.
