Ginny Gilder, two-time Olympian in rowing and author of Course Correction: A Story of Rowing and Resilience in the Wake of Title IX, will be speaking at the Fairfield Public Library, 1080 Old Post Road on Tuesday, May 12. The author talk will begin at noon in the Rotary Room and will be followed by a luncheon, which the Friends of the Fairfield Public Library are providing.

Course Correction recounts the physical and psychological barriers Ginny overcame as she transformed into an elite athlete in the late 1970’s. Taking place against the backdrop of unprecedented cultural change, Ginny’s story personalizes the impact of Title IX, demonstrating the life-changing lessons learned in sports far beyond the athletic fields of play.

GILDER-CourseCorrection-(3)Gilder was on the rowing team for Yale in the wake of Title IX. She is a two-time Olympian winning a silver medal in the 1980 Los Angeles Olympics and she is currently a co-owner of the WNBA’s Seattle Storm. She has become a trailblazer in education and athletic achievement.
