Tough Girl

May 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

Carolyn Wood author of Tough Girl: An Olympian’s Journey discusses her book

Tough Girl recounts two journeys taken almost sixty years apart.  One is the coming-of-age story of a rambunctious and closeted Northwest swimmer during the 1950s as she learns to train, race, and ultimately compete for gold in the 1960 Rome Olympics.  The other follows her memories and meditations along the Camino de Santiago in 2012 as alone she comes to accept the end of a decades long relationship.  Both stories inspire the reader as the ultimate lesson becomes clear:  we get through life one stroke, one step, one page at a time.

All events are FREE and open to the public.

Books available for purchase at the event or contact Bloomsbury at 541-488-0029 or to order a copy.
