One of the fastest American women in history, Sanya Richards-Ross, is in Grand Rapids on Friday, June 2, for a book signing at Gazelle Sports from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

The event precedes the release of the Olympic gold medalist’s new book, Chasing Grace: What the Quarter Mile Has Taught Me About God and Life -- and her children’s book, Run with Me: The Story of a U.S. Olympic Champion.

Both books are available on June 6.

Following the book signing, Richards-Ross will appear at East Kentwood High School to encourage young athletes from across the state as they prepare to compete in the 2017 Michigan District State Track Meet.
