Fire on the Track: Betty Robinson and the Triumph of the Early Olympic Women

Wednesday Oct. 18th 7:00 pm

Betty Robinson was a rural high school student when a track race made her an international star. At the top of her game, a plane crash cut short her career and her life–or did it? So dire was Betty’s condition that she was taken to a morgue, where the undertaker found she was still breathing. Roseanne Montillo brings us the irresistible true story of women who came back from disaster to break barriers and finish-line ribbons in pursuit of Olympic gold.
