Inspired by cycling librarians (see bibliobicicleta.org and magazine.good.is/articles/bike-libraries), I've hatched an idea to combine a cross-country tour with a love of books and a concern about racial/social justice issues to... give books away to people living in "book deserts" along the route. Thinking of calling it "Biking, Books & Black Lives Matter."
Has anyone out there ever done anything like this? Cycling around my home town of Seattle would be one thing, but cross-country is quite another. I imagine partnering with libraries/book stores/community groups along the way, shipping books ahead and then distributing them from hubs. (Rather than hauling a load of books every pedal stroke of the way.)
I've found a couple leads on specially designed book trailers already--
Would love to hear any other tips or resources you can pass along. Thanks!
