Dr. Elizabeth Wilson, associate professor and chair of social work at WWU, will discuss how sports participation gives at-risk young people opportunities to increase their self-esteem and overcome challenges at school, in their neighborhoods and within their families. This ties in with our One Read program, devoted this year to the story of the 1936 U.S. eight-man Olympic men's rowing team.
As part of One Read, enjoy a free screening of the historical drama "King of the Hill," directed by Steven Soderbergh. This film, shot in St. Louis and set in the 1930s, Depression-era Midwest, contains echoes of Joe Rantz, the central character of "The Boys in the Boat." It follows a young boy as he struggles on his own in a run-down motel after his parents and younger brother are separated from him. Post-film discussion led by Dr. Robert M. Collins, professor of history at the University of Missouri. (Rated PG-13, 103 min.)
