Western professors discuss 'Boys in the Boat'

Western Washington University professors hosted a discussion about the history and politics in “Boys in the Boat,” the Western Reads book for this school year that was recently selected as the book for Whatcom Reads.
Professors Kevin Leonard, Sheila Webb and Cornelius Partsch, from the history, journalism and modern and classical languages department respectively, each had something different to add to the conversation on Thursday, Feb. 5, about the book about the University of Washington crew team who won a gold medal in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
