Lake Oswego Library presents

Third Tuesday Author Series

7 – 8 pm

Lake Oswego Library

June 18 – Carolyn Wood

Join us for a visit with local author Carolyn Wood who will read from her 2016 memoir, Tough Girl: An Olympian’s Journey. The book recounts stories of two journeys, separated by 52 years. The first is Carolyn’s coming of age story on her road to the 1960 Rome Olympics as a young swimmer. The second is the story of her 2012 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.
