“Tough Broad” author Caroline Paul to speak at Ashland library

Author Caroline Paul will talk about her latest work of nonfiction, “Tough Broad: From Boogie Boarding to Wing Walking — How Outdoor Adventure Improves Our Lives As We Age” at 6 p.m. Monday, March 18, at the Ashland library, 410 Siskiyou Blvd., Ashland.

The event is free and open to the public. Paul has been an outdoor adventurer her whole life. From mountain biking in the Bolivian Andes to pitching a tent, mid-blizzard, on Denali to flying experimental planes, she has never been a stranger to the beauty and benefits of outdoor activity. But as she hit her mid-fifties and was often the only woman paddling a surfboard or riding a skateboard, she began to wonder why women aren’t encouraged to keep adventuring into old age.

“Tough Broad” shows how outdoor adventure may be the single best solution for a healthy brain and body, a confident mindset, and a longer, happier life.

Date & Time:

March 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
