Event Details

Join the Orangevale Library as we host local author Bob Burns on Saturday, July 20, 2019.  Bob's book, "The Track in the Forest" details the story of the 1968 US men's Olympic track and field team that won 12 gold medals and set six world records at the Mexico City games, one of the most dominant performances in Olympic history. Informed by dozens of interviews by longtime sports journalist Bob Burns, this is the story of how in one of the most divisive years in American history, a California mountaintop provided an incomparable group of Americans shelter from the storm.  Copies of The Track in the Forest will be available for purchase and signing.
