The Reading Line 2016: Books on Bathurst May 28
Looking for something fun and informative to do on May 28? Come check out Books on Bathurst presented by The Reading Line.
Bike along Bathurst, hear from a range of authors, and celebrate activists Jane Jacobs and June Callwood all while experiencing the city from your own two wheels.
The day begins at 3 p.m. at the Fort York Library (190 Fort York Blvd.) and then continues with a ride north to the Tollkeeper's Cottage Museum (Bathurst and Davenport) for 4:30 p.m. The last stop is 6 p.m. at June Callwood Park, located at Bathurst and Queens Quay.
Why the loop, you might ask. The goal of the #BookRide is to demonstrate how a complete streets focus (you know, like bike lanes added?) is needed on Bathurst, which has been experiencing increased density in the form of condos, libraries, childcare facilities, etc. for a number of years now. Oh, it's also to celebrate the year that Jane Jacobs would've turned 100. Happy b-day, Jane!
We will introduce the women behind the Reading Line, Amanda Lewis and Janet Joy Wilson, in our dandy Bike Spotting on Bloor series in our new issue, on newsstands now. Blog post will be available soon.
