Portland bicycle writer Elly Blue will be at the University of Washington-Tacoma on April 4 to discuss her latest book, “Bikenomics: How Bicycling Can Save the Economy” (Microcosm Publishing, $14.95).
The book aims to present a new perspective on the way people get around, transport their families and choose to spend their money. According to event promotional materials, “The book tells stories of people, businesses, organizations and cities who are investing in two-wheeled transportation. The multifaceted North American bicycle movement is revealed, with its contradictions and challenges, successes, and visions.”
The free event is scheduled for noon in Room 215 of the Joy Building.
