About the EventAdventures by the Book is pleased to partner with the Carlsbad City Library for a Free Library Adventure with record-setting athlete, Lynne Cox. Lynne had to train in extreme conditions to achieve the great long-distance open-water feats she has completed. Lynne is best known for swimming the Bering Strait in 1987, from the island of Little Diomede in Alaska to Big Diomede, then part of the Soviet Union, with water temperature averaging around 44°F.
Join us for this Free Library Adventure to learn about the resilience and strength it took Lynne to complete her amazing swims and face the challenges of life, as recounted in her newest book Swimming in the Sink: An Episode of the Heart.
