Boathouse Row”
Presented by Dotty Brown, author of Boathouse Row, Waves of Change in the Birthplace of American Rowing

Wednesday, November 18 at 7 pm
Via Zoom

Dotty Brown, a former reporter and editor for the Inquirer, is an avid rower and member of the Vesper Boat Club. In preparation for writing Boathouse Row, she spent three years of researching the archives of each boathouse. She focuses on the history of rowing, which was once the spectator sport if its time, and “waves of change”- as people of different classes, races, and genders fought for access to rowing.  She will also talk about the influence of East Falls and the Kelly Family.  Her book contains over 160 photographs, many in full color. She will show many of them in her Zoom slide talk, and will answer questions after her presentation.
