One Book, One City, the citywide reading event featuring The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown, culminates today with an author event featuring Brown at Beverly Hills High School Kenneth L. Peters Auditorium, 241 Moreno Dr., at 3 p.m.
Throughout the City of Beverly Hills, residents, students and bookworms have shared the inspiring story of the 1936 Olympic rowing team and their unlikely climb to achieve the Gold Medal for the U.S. in Berlin.
Jointly sponsored by the Beverly Hills Unified School District, the Human Services Department and the Beverly Hills Public Library, residents have been encouraged to read the book with several smaller events leading up to today’s finale.
Brown will sign books and answer questions at this event.
