Join us for a book launch party for Laura Everett's "#HolySpokes: The Search for Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels!" on Friday April 21, 2017 6-9pm+ at Dorchester Brewing Company in Boston.
We'll celebrate the fabulous cycling community in Boston, spiritual seekers, the actual publication of a first book!, a vision of transit justice, and a love of the complicated, formative and holy experience of cities. Books will be available for purchase & signing. Come for the secret #HolySpokes launch party swag!
Dorchester Brewing Company is great new local brewery. We'll be in the tap room in the back. Or if spring ever comes, on the porch.
First 50 guests get a free beer token! Non-alcoholic options too! Check out what's on tap here: dorchesterbrewing.com/tap-menu/
$5 tix get you a chance to win one of my bespoke cycling caps. We'll raise some $$ for Bowdoin Bike School, an amazing community bike school & shop in their bid to create a full scale bike cafe in an abandoned trolley car station in Upham's Corner, Dorchester.
