The Author’s Corner with Jerry Thornton

Melrose Public Library presents:
The Author’s Corner with Jerry Thornton
Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 7:30 PM*

*Children’s Room closes at 7PM

The New England Patriots have won five of the eight Super Bowl championships they’ve played in since 2001, a run of excellence unparalleled in all of professional sports. A dynasty that began with an improbable run to the 2001 championship has rebuilt, rebooted, and retooled several times over, winning the Super Bowl most recently in 2017. But during those years, no other franchise reached the same level of controversy, drama, and turmoil—or even came close.

Jerry Thornton, bestselling author of From Darkness to Dynasty, provides an all-access pass to the Patriots’ years of unparalleled greatness from the unique perspective of an observant, obsessive, utterly dedicated fan.

“Jerry has done a great job capturing the details and emotions of the Patriots’ five championship seasons. It has been an honor to be on two of those teams. I hope we can add a couple more chapters to the book.” – Julian Edelman

Seating is limited.  Please sign up online to reserve a seat or call the Library and speak with a library staff member, 781-665-2313.
