Westborough – Saturday, Dec. 21, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., Tatnuck Bookseller will host Rick Hoyt with Todd Civin as they discuss and sign One Letter at a Time, the lifelong story of inspirational athlete Rick Hoyt, who, along with father Dick Hoyt, make up the incredible marathon duo known as Team Hoyt.

Though Rick has lived life as a non-verbal spastic quadriplegic with cerebral palsy, he has collaborated with co-author Todd Civin for over a year to tell the amazing stories of his life in this exciting new book as told through his own words, thoughts and recollections.

For those who don’t know the complete story, Rick has lived his entire life in a wheel chair unable to speak or control his body from the neck down. Despite his disability, Rick has attended public schools, graduated from Boston University with a degree in Special Education and lives life independently in his own apartment. He is most well known as a world-renowned marathon and triathlete who has been pushed, pedaled and paddled to the finish line by his 72-year-old father Dick Hoyt in over 1100 athletic competitions including 30 Boston Marathons.

One Letter at a Time also includes the stories of 12 authors from Rick’s life who also share their stories of how Rick has inspired them and changed their life story immeasurably.
