David Antonucci, author of Snowball’s Chance: The Story of the 1960 Olympic Winter Games Squaw Valley & Lake Tahoe, will discuss the 1960 Winter Olympics, with a special focus on the games that took place in El Dorado County. The event will be held at the Fausel House Gallery, at 6:00 pm.

 

The Games of Winter is a curated exhibition of art, memorabilia, and promotional items from the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley.

In 1960, the world flocked to Squaw Valley in Lake Tahoe, California, to see world-class athletes competing in the snow and on the ice. Fifty-eight years later, we celebrate that time with a show that coincides with the 2018 Winter Games.
