Local author LAURA VIKMANIS will discuss her book, It’s Not About the Pom-Poms: How a 40-Year-Old Mom Became the NFL’s Oldest Cheerleader—and Found Hope, Joy, and Inspiration Along the Way.

It’s a story of determination, persistence, passion, and taking a chance on a mid-life career change. She gives us a look into the fascinating world of NFL cheerleaders—the grueling workouts, low pay, twice-weekly weigh-ins, and the lifelong bond between the women who share the experience. She also offers encouragement for people seeking to make a career change in their own mid-life years.
