June’s Book Pick: Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown

Composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. This is the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant.

Hard copies are available to pick up at the library; eBooks and eAudios are available on Libby.

This program continues to be hybrid – in-person & virtual. Simply drop in to enjoy the group in person OR register here to receive a Zoom link on the day of the meeting.
