The 2016 Malibu Library Speaker Series continues with Daniel James Brown, bestselling author of The Boys in the Boat.
Daniel James Brown is the New YorkTimes bestselling author of The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The novelist grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended the University of California at Berkeley. He taught writing at San Jose State University and Stanford before becoming a technical writer and editor, first in Silicon Valley and later at Microsoft. He now writes narrative nonfiction books full time.
Brown's primary interest as a writer is in bringing compelling historical events to life as vividly and accurately as he can. He lives in the country outside of Seattle, Washington with his wife, two daughters, and an assortment of cats, dogs, chickens, and honeybees. When he is not writing, he is likely to be birding, gardening, fly fishing, reading American history, or chasing bears away from the bee hives.
This Malibu Library Speaker Series event will take place at the Malibu Library, 23519 W. Civic Center Way, Malibu, CA 90265.
RSVPs are required. RSVP online or call 310.456.6438.
