Five Rings: The Super Bowl History of the New England Patriots (So Far)

December 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Saturday, December 8, 1pm, Community Room

Author Jerry Thornton will discuss his new book Five Rings: The Super Bowl

History of the New England Patriots (So Far). Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.

Since 2001 the Patriots have played in eight Super Bowl championships and won five, a run of excellence unparalleled in all of professional sports. In a league designed to ensure that no one franchise can dominate over time, New England won for over a decade and a half. A dynasty that began with an improbable run to a championship in 2001 has rebuilt, rebooted, and retooled several times over, winning 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. Free event; no registration required.
