Book Business Tuesday: The Type Rider

The Type Rider is coming to town! Maya Stein is a poet and cyclist who on her fortieth birthday set off on a forty-day bike ride from Amherst, Mass to Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a shiny blue typewriter in tow. She rides forty miles a day, stopping in various communities along the way to set up her typewriter and invite people to write a few words. Stein writes extensively each day on her blog, spoke-n-word, (great puns abound on this project!) and posts a slew of gorgeous photos, too.

The Type Rider will be hosting two type-ins in Ann Arbor on Sunday, June 3. This first, from 3 to 5 p.m., will be at Nicola's Books and the second, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Crazy Wisdom Bookstore. You can see the itinerary for the entire trip here. Come share what you have to say!
