Author Richard Golardi Will Be Speaking in Anderson About the Little 500

Journalist and author Richard Golardi is pleased to announce that he will be speaking in Anderson, Indiana, about the city’s iconic sprint car race, the Little 500. The speaking event is being held at the Anderson Public Library on Wednesday, July 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the main branch location, 111 East 12th Street, Anderson. Richard’s subject will be “Anderson’s Little 500 and the Racers in the Sun,” and he will be signing copies of his book immediately after his talk.

Richard currently writes a column on about Florida sprint car racing and covers the Little 500 race each year for his column in addition to being a new author. His book, Racers in the Sun, Volume One, was released in May. For half the month of May, the book was ranked number one in New Releases in Motorsports on Amazon and has been reviewed by Anderson Herald Bulletin Senior Reporter Ken de la Bastide. He wrote that he would “highly recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the Little 500.”

In the book, there are over 100 pages devoted to the Little 500, focusing mainly on those stories that involve the Florida drivers and car owners, and Richard will make that the main topic in his talk. There are six Florida drivers and car owners with biographies in the book who are also inductees into the Little 500 Hall of Fame. Richard will also include some untold stories from the Little 500 that were not included in the book and will speak about some humorous situations that occurred during his travels conducting research. Don’t miss this important event, the first ever in Anderson to feature an author who has devoted a substantial portion of his book to the story of Anderson’s great auto race, the Little 500.
