VSDC Book Club discusses “The Boys in the Boat” (online)


Please join the Veg Society of DC Book Club discussion of “The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics” by Daniel James Brown. This meeting will take place online, via zoom.

Out of the depths of the Depression comes a story of hope and an intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world what true grit really meant. A young readers edition (grades 4-7) is available if you have youngsters who would like to join us.

To participate read at least half the book — and RSVP at least two days before the meeting. People who RSVP yes will get the details to join the discussion (the weekend before the meeting). The details will not be posted on meetup.

The VSDC Book Club began meeting online in March 2020 (previously we met in vegetarian restaurants in DC or nearby Maryland or Virginia). We read fiction and nonfiction in alternating months, about any topic. For more information (including everything we have read over 30+ years!) visit:
Or contact Beth through meet up:

Don't be a no show! If your plans change, update your RSVP.
