‘Bikes + Books’ event will showcase local authors

Posted by on June 19th, 2014 at 8:52 am

A cool event coming to the Disjecta arts space in Kenton next week (6/26) combines two of our favorite things: bikes and books. It’s being organized by the same folks behind Filmed by Bike so you know it’ll be great.

Check out the event announcement below:

Bikes+Books: A literary event with a bar.
Wednesday, June 25
Disjecta Contemporary Arts Courtyard – North McClellen east of N. Denver in Kenton

In the last five years, Portland has seen an explosion of authors publishing bike-related books. For one night only, Nisus Gallery, in conjunction with Filmed by Bike, will bring these authors to the Disjecta alfresco stage for an evening of live readings, a bar, food cart, book sales, book signing and a photo booth in the courtyard.

This event is free. Rain or shine. (indoor space available)


If you are planning on going to the Photobooth ride, you can do both! We will be rockin a photo booth and the photo booth ride will stop by at 9, so you can join in with them at that time.
