We look at this year’s selection for the Maryland Humanities Council’s “One Maryland One Book,” The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, with author Daniel James Brown. The Boys in the Boat is the dramatic true story of the American rowing team that stunned the world at the 1936 Berlin Olympics and defeated the most elite rivals, including the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler.
