It's a Pedaling Revolution!

Remember last week when I told you about Roberta's oh-so-very-cute polka-dot bike helmet? Well, here's a photo, so you can see for yourself just how sweet it is. Roberta rode her bike to work on National Bike To Work Day last Friday, and again yesterday. Not sure if she'll make it on bike today, since it's raining (that would be enough for me) and we have a reading at the store tonight, so it will likely be dark when she goes home.

Note also the book in her basket: Pedaling Revolution, by Jeff Mapes, who spoke to a standing-room-only crowd at Broadway Books recently. We just learned yesterday that Jeff''s book, published by Oregon State University Press, will be reviewed in the New York Time Book Review Summer Reading Issue (May 31st). Woohoo!!! Always nice to see local authors/publishers hitting the big press. (Speaking of which, did you see the review of Hush, Memory, by Elina Hirvonen and published by local Tin House Press on the cover of the May 10th New York Times Book Review? Get your copy of that book here!)
