      Nonfiction @ Night: "The Boys in the Boat" by Daniel Brown

      Give your brain a work-out by reading and discussing some timely nonfiction titles during the Nonfiction @ Night Book Club at our Stratford Branch!

      The book we'll read and discuss for February is "The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics" by Daniel Brown. This 2014 book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar rowing crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal. It traces the story of the team that defeated elite rivals at Hitler's 1936 Berlin Olympics, sharing the experiences of their enigmatic coach, a visionary boat builder, and a homeless teen rower.
