Peggy Shinn, a sports journalist who has covered all aspects of the Olympics and a contributor to the U.S. Olympic Committee's and TeamUSA.org's website, and the author of a new book "World Class", will discuss the dramatic rise of the U.S. women's cross-country ski team, many of whom are Vermonters. She will be joined by Trina Hosmer a competitor for the United States in the 1972 Sapporo Winter Olympics, the first with women's cross country skiing events. Trina is a Vermont Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame inductee. Schedules willing, we will also be joined by two-time Olympian and 2018 Olympic alpine ski team member Nolan Kasper, and other Olympians.

Sponsors Collective Arts Brewing and Hetta will be serving $5 craft beers and Norwegian style glogg with complimentary popcorn. A $10 entry at the door benefits the museum. Thirsty Thursday talks focus on the skiing and riding history being made today by Vermonters in our state, and beyond.
