A Book of Treasures: One on One with Daniel James Brown

Author Daniel James Brown gives us the back-story of his compelling New York Times’ Best Seller “The Boys in the Boat” – a tale of the countless challenges facing the U.S. eight-oar rowing team during the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Throughout this story, Brown drops what he calls informational “treasures” that transport the reader to Depression-era USA and Nazi Germany. Join us as he describes the six-year journey he took to find all those “treasures” and write the story that reveals the heart and dedication of not just the nine boys in the boat, but the people of that entire generation.
