Long-Armed Ludy and the First Women's Olympics - Jean L. S. Patrick, Adam Gustavson

Staff Pick

Lucile “Ludy” Godbold was a gifted athlete whose exceptionally long and strong arms made her an elite shot-putter at Winthrop College. She earned the opportunity to compete in the inaugural “Women’s Olympics” in Paris in 1922, but she did not have the money to finance the trip on her own. Thanks to the generosity of her classmates and teachers, however, the tale of Long-Armed Ludy and the First Women’s Olympics (Charlesbridge, $16.99) would end with a gold medal and a new world record. Adam Gustavson’s nostalgic oil-paint-and-gouache illustrations enrich Jean L.S. Patrick’s fun and informative story of an American champion. Ages 7-11.
