Coffee & Conversation Book Discussion Group
September 16 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Discussion held in “Libby’s Corner” at the front of the library
Our discussion for September will be about The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. From the publisher’s website:
. . .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.
It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team 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. . .
