Don’t forget about the book launch tomorrow (July 5), immediately after our LOST Swim! We’ve even arranged to have it just up the street at the library… and if that wasn’t enough… they are supplying the post-swim coffee and donuts! See you there!
My friend Laura Young has written a book about Lake Ontario Crossings!!!
There really hasn’t been a book about swimming the Great Lakes since the excellent book by Conrad Weneberger: Wind, Waves and Sunburn, which is about marathon swimming back in the glory days in all the Great Lakes, but Laura’s book is all about Lake O Crossings and is up to date as of 2012! (which mean, yes… even, lil’ ol’ me is in it!)
Even better, you can pick up an autographed copy of the book from the author! And even better than that… we’ve arranged a book signing and a little panel discussion with the author and 3 people in the book… me, Madhu and Melanie! And it is going to be at the library just up the street from our Saturday morning LOST swim on Saturday, July 5 at 10:00 am! Perfect!
