Matthew Taylor
Story Crawl; A Progressive Book Read

Add to your calendar
Date: August 30, 6:00 pm
Details: Story Crawl; A Progressive Book Reading on Bikes with Matthew Taylor. 
Thursday, August 306:00 p.m. 
Free

Pedal along with humorist and long-time beloved friend of Crested Butte, Matthew Taylor, as he reads Crested Butte-centric stories from his award-winning memoir Goat Lips: Tales of a Lapsed Englishman. The lively, but laid-back 1 ½ mile criterion will depart from Townie Books on Elk Avenue and visit local stops to hear “hilariously nimble” and “deeply poignant” stories before looping back to Elk Avenue for drinks and conviviality (non-bikers can take the shortened route straight from Townie Books to drinking). The progressive book reading will be fully supported with refreshments and bike-a-long music. Copies of Matthew’s books will be for sale and the author will happily attempt to sign them while riding.

Meet at Townie Books with you bike.
