on Saturday March 18th at 6 pm
Carolyn Wood, born and raised in Portland, Oregon, won a gold medal in swimming in the 1960 Rome Olympics at age fourteen. She is a retired English teacher who spent more than thirty years encouraging students to write and is now taking her own advice, although often she’d rather be practicing yoga, or outdoors tending her bees and garden or hiking backroads and mountain trails. Ms. Wood’s work has appeared in Teachers as Writers and Elohi Gadugi Journal. This is her first book.
