MIDDLEBURY — In what could be considered perfect timing, author Peggy Shinn will read from, discuss and sign “World Class: The Making of the U.S. Women’s Cross-Country Ski Team,” her new book chronicling the dramatic rise of the now Olympic Gold Medal-winning team. Shinn will be at The Vermont Book Shop in Middlebury on Wednesday, March 28, at 6:30 p.m. If they’re not too exhausted by all the attention and accolades, some of the team members might make it as well.

Picture this: The lights go dark on a theater packed with an eager audience, tension builds in the silence until places are taken and props set. Everyone is frozen; waiting for the cue to begin the scene.

Mike Heaney’s platoon was in the lead on patrol in the dense Central Highlands of Vietnam when his company was ambushed by Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army regulars, twice their number.
