Team of Their Own: How an International Sisterhood Made Olympic History

About this Event

Seth Berkman will be in conversation with olympic team member Randi Griffin discussing the book A Team of Their Own: How an International Sisterhood Made Olympic History.

In A Team of Their Own Berkman goes behind the scenes to tell the story of these young women as they became a team amid immense political pressure and personal turmoil, and ultimately gained worldwide acceptance on a journey that encapsulates the truest meanings of sport and family.

While the politics are a peg, at its center the story is about identity, family and coming of age.
