How did Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall stun the world by winning the first Olympic gold medal for the U.S. in cross-country skiing at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games? And what makes a great team like the one that produced such unprecedented results? Award-winning author Peggy Shinn (www.pegmcshinn.com) will reveal the answers, based on her book World Class: The Making of the U.S. Women's Cross-Country Ski Team in her upcoming NEFCU presentation.  A four-time winner of the prestigious Harold Hirsch Award, Shinn has covered five Olympic games. Her first book, Deluge, told the story of Hurricane Irene and how Vermont saved itself.
