Author Discussion: Harry Hall

Farmers Branch Manske Library

Author Harry Hall will speak on Tuesday, January 19 at 7 pm about the phenomenon that took America by storm in the late 1800s: professional endurance walking.

Hall's latest book, "The Pedestriennes," tells the nearly forgotten story of the pedestriennes, the professional female endurance walkers who toured the country putting on long-distance walking competitions. 

Discover the story of the women who set the stage for the revival of the modern Olympic Games and the suffragist movement.
