Whatcom Reads! events coming up

If you haven’t read Daniel James Brown’s “Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics,” you have just over a month before Brown comes to Whatcom County to speak as the highlight of the annual Whatcom Reads! events. Even if you don’t row, even if you don’t know much about the 1936 Olympics, you’ll be captivated by the tenacity of the members and coaches of the University of Washington crew on their path to glory.
