6 Books to Get You in the Spirit for the Winter Games
I love watching the Winter Games, and I eagerly anticipate its return every four years. It’s so much more than just sport—these are the moments athletes have worked toward their whole lives, and they travel across the world to compete on behalf of their country. To celebrate, here’s a list of six inspiring books written by or about these stunning athletes. In researching this list, it struck me that so many of these books focus on times of war or depression because the games create an opportunity in a dark time for hope, for an underdog to win, and for a country to come together to cheer one another on.
