RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — Olympian Laurie Hernandez will be in Ridgewood on Jan. 22 to sign a copy of her new book, "I Got This."

The New Jersey native was nicknamed the "Human Emoji" for her wide-eyed and animated expressions.
Hernandez' new book explores her dream of becoming an Olympian and what it took to win.
Laurie Hernandez will hold her book signing at Bookends Bookstore on E. Ridgewood Ave., Jan. 22 at 1 p.m.
