Boys in the Boat
This summer we invite you to read Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown. This incredibly fascinating true story relates the experiences of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. A great story about "beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times." Other titles by the author include Under a Flaming Sky and Indifferent Stars Above.
Then join us in meeting with the author for a great evening of discussion in celebration of
