WHY WE SWIM with Bonnie Tsui and Susan Casey

Monday, June 8, 2020 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Please join us for an aquatic happy hour! 

Bonnie Tsui will discuss her new book, WHY WE SWIM

Join us on Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81149139164

Why We Swim is propelled by stories of Olympic champions, a Baghdad swim club that meets in Saddam Hussein’s palace pool, modern-day Japanese samurai swimmers, and even an Icelandic fisherman who improbably survives a wintry six-hour swim after a shipwreck. New York Times contributor Bonnie Tsui, a swimmer herself, dives into the deep, from the San Francisco Bay to the South China Sea, investigating what about water—despite its dangers—seduces us and why we come back to it again and again.

Bonnie will be joined by Susan Casey, author of Devil's Teeth (a favorite of ours), The Wave, and several other wet, fantastic books.
