The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown.

The Ruth Enlow Library is pleased to participate in this year’s One Maryland One Book project – a program designed to bring diverse groups of Marylanders together in library, school, or community settings to share a common reading experience by discussing a work of literature and participating in related events.Registration is required by contacting Crystal at the Accident Library.

This year’s selected book – The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Olympics by Daniel James Brown – tells the forgotten, yet compelling and true story of the University of Washington’s 1936 eight-oar varsity rowing team, a group of working class boys who defeated crews from eastern and British universities to go on to the Berlin Olympics and win the gold. The book also focuses on the team members, especially the heartwarming story of Joe Rantz – a “teenager without family or prospects,” notes Penguin Books, “who rows not for glory but to gain control over his life and build a stable future for his family.”

The discussion will be facilitated by Krista McKenzie, Instructional and Reference Librarian at Garrett College. A former children’s specialist and branch manager for the Ruth Enlow Library, McKenzie earned her Bachelor of Science in English, Philosophy, and Secondary Education from Frostburg State University in 2001. Several years later, she achieved her Master’s in Education and an MBA from FSU, and in 2010, a Master’s in Library and Information Science from Drexel University. A member of the American Library Association and the Maryland Library Association, McKenzie has presented at the local, state, and national levels and is a board member of the Young Adult Library Services Association.
