Episode 66: Caroline Paul’s Mighty Adventures

Caroline Paul

Caroline Paul

What hasn’t Caroline Paul done? A one-time collegiate rower and Olympic-caliber luger, Paul has published non-fiction and historic fiction, books about stalking her cat, a memoir about being one of the first women to join the San Francisco Fire Department, and illustrated books that call for “bravery, perseverance and breaking the tyranny of perfection.” Her latest, You Are Mighty: A Guide to Changing the World, is an inspiring call to action for today’s middle-grade kids. This week, on publication day for You Are Mighty, Paul joins the GrottoPod for a wide-ranging conversation about her adventurous life, overcoming her fears, the power of perseverance, her siblings, experimental airplanes and the world record she once almost held.
