Athletes are heading to Pyeongchang, South Korea for the Winter Olympics. We get there first courtesy of writer Christina Farley. We may not race down a mountainside, avoiding moguls or leaping into the air on the ice rink to execute a perfect triple lutz, but there are thrills and spills aplenty in "Gilded." Plus, we learn some Korean mythology and folk tales. Readers from the Richard Byrd Library in Springfield, Virginia discuss the book with host Kitty Felde. Actress Julia Cho is our celebrity reader.
