The Joy of Swimming: A Celebration of our Love for Getting in the Water

Summer is just around the corner. And if your favorite warm-weather activity is swimming, you'll love the new book by artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon. A celebration of the joy of swimming, the collection explores the wonders, lessons, and memories that swimming evokes through hand-lettered inspirational quotes; watercolor portraits and stories of noteworthy swimmers; illustrated collections of vintage bathing suits, swim caps, and pool signs; and delightful presentations of facts and artifacts from the history of swimming. Whether you're a serious swimmer or a vacation paddler, join us as we celebrate the rush of the high dive, the dedication of competitive racing, and the serenity of calm waters at this discussion and signing of The Joy of Swimming with Lisa Congdon—in conversation with comedian Tracey Conway.
