David Byrne wrote a new book entitled Bicycle Diaries, a travelogue about bicycles and urban life.

From DB website: he pedals through and engages with some of the world’s major cities. In places like Buenos Aires, Istanbul, San Francisco, and London, the focus is more on the musicians and artists he encounters. Politics comes to the fore in cities like Berlin and Manila, while chapters on New York City, and on the landscaped suburban industrial parks and contemporary ruins of such spots as Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Columbus are more concerned with history in the urban landscape.  (more)

The book promo and knowledge exchange will be at the Herbst Theatre at 8 PM

From CA&L website: David Byrne will be joined on stage by David Chiu, the President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors; Leah Shahum, the Director of the San Francisco Bike Coalition; and Mike Teitz, Director of the Economy Program, a Senior Fellow, and former Director of Research at the Public Policy Institute of California. Together they will address the intersection between bicycle advocacy, urban planning, civic responsibility, and the pleasure of seeing the world from the vantage point of a bicycle. (more)
