Have you gotten a free copy of Our Boys by Joe Drape? You can at the library’s main desk!
Our Boys is an inspiring story about how a coach and a small town build young people with the basic values of love, patience, and hard work, a vivid slice of American life. It began with an interesting report of a high school football team with the nation’s longest winning streak. What Joe Drape discovered while writing a feature article for his newspaper went far deeper than just another football story. He brought to readers everywhere inspiration that goes to the core of what America’s heartland is today.
