“The Boys in the Boat” wins national bookseller award

Daniel James Brown and his book "The Boys in the Boat."

Daniel James Brown and his book “The Boys in the Boat.”

I’m happy to report that Redmond author Daniel James Brown has won the 2014 Indies Choice Award from the American Booksellers Association for his fabulous story of the 1936 Huskies rowing team, “The Boys in the Boat.” Brown won the prize for the adult nonfiction book of the year.

This is surely a satisfying award to win because it’s given by independent booksellers nationwide, who presumably know what they’re talking about when it comes to good books.

“The Boys in the Boat” is the story of the University of Washington crew team that won the 1936 Olympics, vanquishing Hitler’s hand-picked team. For more information, here’s the Seattle Times review and an interview with Brown on how he wrote the book. And here’s a recent televised interview with Brown on “Well Read,” the books and authors show on state public affairs network TVW.
