We Bike Book Club
Thursday, May 4, 2023
For May, we're reading Loaners: the making of a street library, by Ben Hodgson and Laura Moulton.
In 2011, Laura Moulton founded Street Books, a mobile library serving people living outside in Portland, Oregon. That summer, Ben Hodgson became one of her most dedicated regulars, setting the still-unbroken single-season record for borrowing. Then Ben’s routine’s changed, and he didn’t cross paths again with Laura for almost two years. Loaners is the story they began to tell when they reconnected, offering a street-level perspective of a community whose stories are seldom told, alternating between their two unforgettable points of view in this addictively readable, occasionally sublime memoir.
Copies available at the Main Library (1st floor service desk). If you'd like a copy sent to your local branch library, please email Erin at email@example.com.
We Bike Book Club meets online on the first Thursday of each month. Co-hosted by Oakland Public Library and Bike East Bay.
