A BABY in the WATER  

Imagine you are a long-distance swimmer, in California. 

 In training, you swim way out in the Pacific Ocean,  beyond wave breaks.  You realize you are not alone.

GRAYSON is the other-worldly story marathon swimmer Lynne Cox wrote, inspired by her experience in the water, when she discovered that her steady path through the ocean now attracted the attention of a baby gray whale,  apparently separated from its mother on a long journey north to feeding grounds. 

Lynne Cox, who lectures worldwide & is the recipient of many honors, discusses her book and more Sunday, Feb. 17 in Florida at Fort Lauderdale, at the International Swimming Hall of Fame.  Sorry for the short notice but I found out about this recently through the Florida Center for the Book.
