Super Bowl History of New England Patriots with Jerry Thornton


Join us for a free author event with Jerry Thornton, author of Five Rings: The Super Bowl History of the New England Patriots (So Far) 

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.

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. 

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 Thornton writes daily for Barstool Sports and co-hosts their NFL podcast, Laces Out. He’s a stand-up comic working clubs all over the Northeast and the author of From Darkness to Dynasty: The First 40 Years of the New England Patriots. Jerry is the former co-host of WEEI sports radio’s Dale and Holley with Thornton and NBC Sports Boston’s Patriots pregame show. He appears in HBO’s Emmy-winning Red Sox documentary Reverse the Curse of the Bambino as well as the Deflategate film Four Games in Fall.
