NW Author Series- Carolyn Wood


Join us for our 2016-2017 NW Author Series Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 2 PM. A part of the Cannon Beach Woman’s Only Weekend event.

Special guest author Carolyn Wood will be discussing her book Tough Girl: An Olympian’s Journey.

A lifelong Oregonian who, in the summer of her high school freshman year, became a competitive swimmer winning a gold medal in the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome. She raced nationally and internationally for three more years before attending University of Oregon. After teaching English for 35 years, and encouraging students to write, she finally took her own advice and put her own story into words. Woven into her tale is another journey, taking on El Camino in Spain to reclaim the fourteen year old tough girl of her youth.
