Lessons in Courage and Heart from Olympic Gold to the Camino de Santiago
by Carolyn Wood
A coming-of-age memoir of a young swimmer’s triumphs and heartbreaks on the path to winning Olympic gold at age 14. Some 50 years later, author Carolyn Wood embarks on a solo pilgrimage to walk the 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago in an attempt to reclaim her “inner tough girl” as she reflects on coming out as gay in the 1970s after a brief marriage and motherhood, and the disillusionment and loss she experiences when her 30-year relationship suddenly ends.
Join Carolyn at Powell's City of Books in Portland, OR on the evening of August 15th for a reading and author talk!
