Attention Football Fans! Join us for a free author event with Jerry Thornton, author of From Dynasty to Darkness: The First 40 Years of the New England Patriots. The event will be held in the Community Room and will feature an author talk, Q&A and book signing. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and light refreshments will be served.
From Darkness to Dynasty tells the unlikely history of the New England Patriots as it has never been told before. From their humble beginnings as a team bought with rainy-day money by a man who had no idea what he was doing to the fateful season that saw them win their first Super Bowl, Jerry Thornton shares the wild, humiliating, unbelievable, and wonderful stories that comprised the first forty years of what would ultimately become the most dominant franchise in NFL history. Witty, hilarious, and brutally honest, From Darkness to Dynasty returns to the thrilling, perilous days of yesteryear - a welcome corrective to those who hate the Patriots and a useful reminder for those who love them that all glory is fleeting.
