Join us as we host journalist and author Bonnie Tsui as she shares stories from her recent book, Why We Swim. Tsui will detail the evolution of human swimming from learning for survival to testing our limits, and will highlight swimmers from around the world. Tsui offers an immersive and unforgettable perspective on swimming—and of human behavior itself.
