Read “The Boys in the Boat” for February 7 Book Club
The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown will be the subject of discussion at the February meeting of the Westminster Book Club. This compelling book tells the true story of nine working-class boys and their epic quest for gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. No one expected this motley crew from the University of Washington to beat the elite teams from the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, and then went on to challenge the German boat rowing for Adolph Hitler.
The Library Journal calls this book “stirring,” while USA Today describes it as “a suspenseful tale of triumph.”
All readers are welcome to join the Book Club on February 7 at 6:30 p.m. in Simmerman Lounge. While supplies last, books from the public library’s book discussion set are available for check-out in the church office. You may also borrow, download or purchase the book on your own, or contact a Book Club member to share a book. For more information, contact Jan Davison.
ABOUT THE CLUB
The Westminster Book Club began a few years ago as one of the adult classes on Wednesday evenings. The Book Club continues to meet during Westminster 242 on the first Wednesday of each month, but it doesn't end when the program year ends -- the Book Club meets year-round. The group, which currently has about 15-20 active members, gathers at 6:30 p.m. in Simmerman Lounge.
Books from the Public Library's Book Discussion sets are used, however, readers are also welcome to download, borrow or purchase the books on their own. Book selections include non-fiction, fiction, memoirs, historical novels, biographies and more.
Book Club members enjoy lively discussion while strengthening the bonds of fellowship and friendship. All readers are welcome!
