Skate on, roller derby girls!

Hey--dontcha know we have roller girls in town! Two teams--the CU Rollers and the Twin City Derby Girls.

If you can't attend matches locally, you can still celebrate the rough and tumble sport of roller derby by checking out Shelley Calton's photo essay of skating in Dallas, Texas--Hard Knocks: Rolling with the Derby Girls.

This new collection is available now to borrow at The Urbana Free Library. If you can't wait for the book, view the striking images online.

Listen to the author talk about the women she met and chronicled, her photographic technique, and her quest to publish.
