Christina Shook’s “Chicks on Bikes” West Coast Book Tour and Show..

Christina Shook, photographer and author of the awesome 154 page hardcover book, “Chicks on Bikes”, is planning a three state, west coast book tour and show. She will be traveling up the coast to several venues promoting her book and doing a showing of her artistically stimulating portraits of real women that actually ride the bikes they straddle. This book is wonderfully balanced with picture and text used to clear up misnomer while putting an end to the stereotypes. Her pictures are truly stellar and her choice of women, primarily from the San Francisco area, brilliantly depict women riders from tough to the delicate and everything in between. Some of the faces I recognized and some were women I wished I knew but, all were beautiful.
Listen to Christina speak about her book @http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1liD6giJNQ&NR=1
Christina takes a refreshing and daring look at the culture and lifestyles of women who happen to ride. There is real passion infused into these images and stories and it will be a pleasure to be able to meet the author and be part of some festivities right here in my own backyard. My local HD dealership, Latus Harley Davidson, Gladstone ( http://www.latus-hd.com/home.html ), is having the 2nd annual “Wall of Death” gathering, July 3-5th, and will be hosting Christina’s book signing and show during the event. Their events coordinator, Migon Fleming, is using Christina’s story about Samantha Morgan’s Wall of Death riding to tie into the event. Everyone was very familiar with the book and are thrilled to have her as their guest, as am I.
