Stillwater Gazette: Brave Enough

Travel with Olympic gold medalist Jessie Diggins on her compelling journey from America’s heartland to international sports history, navigating challenges and triumphs with rugged grit and a splash of glitter

Afton native and Olympic champion Jessie Diggins will be visiting Stillwater Area High School on April 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. as part of the launch of her new memoir.

Titled “Brave Enough,” the book that officially releases on March 10 shares Diggins’s own life journey, from her childhood in Afton to her historic sprint to the finish line for Gold in the team sprint event at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics.

The launch event is free and open to the public, but tickets are going fast and are in limited supply. Visit to reserve a ticket and secure a spot in the SAHS gymnasium. Pre-signed copies of the book are also available for purchase.
