Writer's Talking at Central Library

Don't miss this fantastic literary event on Saturday, May 16 at 1:00 p.m. at Central Library, 801 S.W. 10th Ave. Jeff Mapes, award-winning journalist and senior political reporter for The Oregonian, will talk about his new book, Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities. Mapes blogs on Mapes on Politics and also co-authored a book on Oregon history. In his newest book, he talks about the significance of bicycle culture spanning the different cities of Amsterdam, San Francisco, and New York. Publisher's Weekly says, "Focusing largely on the cyclists themselves, Mapes puts a passionate and pragmatic face to the 'new urban bike movement' while connecting the dots between cycling culture and a host of quality of life issues."

Writers Talking is a free lecture, discussion, and reading series sponsored by Multnomah County Library featuring regional writers. For more information on Jeff Mapes or other upcoming Writers Talking events, visit
