About this event:
Popular Chicago writer Greg Borzo joins us to discuss his latest book, titled RAGBRAI: America's Favorite Bicycle Ride. Borzo will be joined by T.J. Juskiewicz, RAGBRAI Director.
Launched as a lark in 1973, RAGBRAI has developed into the world’s largest, longest and oldest bicycle touring event. Thousands of cyclists from all 50 states and dozens of countries ride across Iowa every July for this weeklong festival, the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa. Greg Borzo, author of the popular The Chicago “L,” has gathered hundreds of stories that reveal the essence of this unique event. He has also gathered a lavish collection of photographs—vintage and contemporary, most never published before—that illustrate RAGBRAI’s kaleidoscopic character.
Seating is available first come, first served. Reservations not required. Books are available for purchase and the author will sign books at the conclusion of the program.
