Did you know that the Oakland Public Library co-hosts a Women Bike Book Club with Bike East Bay? We gather to discuss biking, feminism, and the intersection of the two on the second Thursday of each month at 6:00pm, at our Golden Gate Branch (5606 San Pablo Avenue). The book club was started by Bike East Bay as part of their Women Bike initiative, which brings women and gender nonconforming folks together in social settings to share experiences and resources with each other.
Ok so the book club sounds awesome but why are we talking about that here?
Our meeting on November 9th will focus on children’s books! We'll have some great selections of bike-related children's literature, and we'll talk about moms, biking, and the next generation of cyclists. Join us to enjoy beautiful illustrations, good conversation, and maybe even pick up some gift ideas for the little feminists in your life.
If you can’t join us, here are the books we’ll be looking at:
Mei-Mei loves the morning by Margaret Tsubakiyama
The girl and the bicycle by Mark Pett
New Red Bike by James Ransome
A Bike Like Sergio’s by Maribeth Boelts
Along a Long Road by Frank Viva
The green bicycle by Haifaa Al Mansour
