Writers Present: Julie Foudy

6:30pm to 7:30pm

Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, two-time World Cup Champion with the United States women’s national soccer team, local sports hero Julie Foudy joins us on Tuesday, May 23rd at 6:30 PM at the Norman P. Murray Center to talk about her new book, Choose to Matter: Being courageously and fabulously you.

Choose to Matter is for the teenage girl starting her journey or for the woman at a critical fork in her journey. It's for everyone and anyone who needs a little push to find courage, motivation, and confidence. Life lessons from Julie and other inspiring women such as Robin Roberts, Mia Hamm, Alex Morgan, and Sheryl Sandberg espouse the values of dreaming out loud, laughing often, and finding joy in all aspects of life. These diverse women share their journeys of growth so that other young women can live courageously as well.

For over 11 years with the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy, Julie encourages young women to find their voice, think differently, and empower others. This book serves as a hands-on guide to help young women celebrate the courageous leader that lives in all of us. And yes, laughter permitted.

Julie will be bringing some special guests for a “sock talk” to inspire and encourage audience members as they pursue their dreams and make important life decisions.

This free Writers Present program is sponsored by the Friends of the Mission Viejo Library and Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore. Books will be available on site for $17.99 plus tax, and Julie will stay after the presentation to sign books purchased at the event.
