Roller Derby + Bodies of Subversion: The Secret History of Women and Tattoo

To read is an action verb for the Amused Readers of the N4B - and never more so than with our series Think + Do where we pair a non-boring title with a spirited activity that's good for the mind and good for the body.

Roller Derby and a hearty bout of reading to cure the winter blues is nothing less than sex on wheels. March's selection is Bodies of Subversion: The Secret History of Women and Tattoo (see, http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1018.Bodies_of_Subversion), and then toughen-up your bookworm cheering the hellions of the Steel City Roller Demons - see, http://www.steelcityderbydemons.com/home/.... Boom! Sean8€> Note: I can order your copy of Bodies of Subversion from our friends at Big Idea Cooperative Bookstore & Cafe. Please let me know before February 1, 2013.

    Thanks, N4Bskateers! Always good times to be found with yinz... especially exciting to be in the company of such fast and furious ladies cheering on some fast and furious ladies celebrating a book about some fast and furious ladies. One of our own might be joining the jam on the flat-track... maybe we'll be cheering her own soon!

      Boot Camp starts in November, and tryouts are in January! Also thinking of renaming myself "Anna Scar-enina," "Bella Trips Deranged," or from a character in one of my fav books, "Maul Flanders". :)

    Sorry, I scheduled an interview at exactly the same time unwittingly.

      No worries. We're sorry to have missed you. I hope you enjoyed the book.

    I'm too sick to go, but you guys will have a great time. Bouts are a blast! And they sell cow bells! :)

    May be slightly late, (working until 5:30) but I'll definitely be there!

    Also, their post-bout open-skate is cancelled, so this event will be spectator only. Additionally, I'd like to make mention the venue's food selections are within the concessions variety, please consider this while considering your dining needs for the event. Thank you.

    Bouts sometimes sell out early, and it's cheaper online than at the door. I'd recommend buying tix ahead of time.

      Indeed, Wendi - thanks!

      I'll be there between 5:30 and 6:00. My phone number is[masked]

    Thanks to Steve & the Whooligans I am compelled instead of merely tempted. And the answer is no, I cannot skate.

    Note: This event is open for anyone who wants to come - Bodies of Subversion is an awesome book, but it's cool if you just want to come for a bout of the Beyond.

    Howdy! Books are in. I only had Big Idea order six copies to begin - as I figured between our crafty library assassins, the care to share method, and folk who really might be coming just for the flat track... so go git 'dem copies. It's a good looking book! Peace.

  • Sean

    If you would like Big Idea to order you a copy, please let me know below - and if I you would, please provide a copy of your telephone number for the benefit of the book store's ordering requests, or contact Big Idea directly at[masked]-4323. Rock on!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
