Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Boys in the boatTitle to be discussed: The boys in the boat by Daniel James Brown.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, May 10, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "The University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the nine boys, in the depths of the Great Depression, showed the world what beating the odds really meant. They defeated elite rivals from California and eastern schools to earn the right to compete against the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin. The crew was assembled by an enigmatic coach and mentored by a visionary, eccentric British boat builder, but it was their trust in each other that made them a victorious team."
