Author David Antonucci on Feb. 13 will share the story of how in 1960 the eyes of the world focused on Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe as the Winter Olympics played out on a world stage.
At the Lake Tahoe Historical Society’s first Fireside Chat of the year, guests will hear about and see vignettes that describe the individual stories of enigma and invention, written off underdogs that ultimately came out on top, and a promise to win gold made to a terminally ill loved one. The presentation is based on Antonucci’s book, “Snowball’s Chance: The Story of the 1960 Olympic Winter Games,” which will be available for purchase and signing.
The event will begin at 7pm at Camp Richardson’s Historic Hotel. Cost is $3 to attend, free for LTHS members.
