DECEMBER 6TH: Dotty Brown on BOATHOUSE ROW: Waves of Change in the Birthplace of American Rowing

 


Dotty Brown discusses her new book Boathouse Row: Waves of Change in the Birthplace of American Rowing.

Brown, an avid rower and former editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer, immersed herself in boathouse archives to provide a comprehensive history of rowing in Philadelphia.

She takes readers behind the scenes to recount the era when rowing was the spectator sport of its time and the subject of Thomas Eakins early artwork through the heyday of the famed Kelly dynasty, and the fight for women to get the right to row.
