Tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the 5th and K Busboys & Poets, grammy-award winning nominated poet and activist Nikki Giovanni will discuss her newest collection of works “Bicycles: Love Poems.” In “Bicycles,” the 65-year-old Giovanni chronicles her rediscovery of love in a volume that is is ernest, playful, romantic and erotic. Celebrate love and the months of bicycles and poetry with a little bit of all three.
