Book Ride Brampton 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

This free, 7-kilometre bike ride and reading is a partnership between the Reading Line and the Festival of Literary Diversity.

The day begins at the Brampton Library South Fletcher’s Branch, where authors Carrianne Leung and Pratap Reddy will share excerpts from their books. From there, it’s a short ride through Brampton neighbourhoods and along the Etobicoke Creek recreational trail to the pavilion, where Amanda Leduc and Ken Puddicombe will share more stories. The bike ride continues on to Garden Square, and will wrap up with readings from Gary Barwin and Lamoi Simmons.

The authors featured along this ride will share rich, compelling literature of all genres, spanning historical fiction to poetry. Whether you’re a book lover, a bike lover or both, this event is a wonderful opportunity to discover new authors, hear their words come to life, and explore Brampton by bike.
