“Patriot Pride” author to speak at Westborough Public LibraryWestborough – The Westborough Public Library will present local author Vin Femia Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m., to talk about his new book, “Patriot Pride: The 50 Year Rise of the New England Patriots as Seen Through a Fan's Eyes.”

The book provides a decade-by-decade summary of the sometimes turbulent and recently dominant history of the New England Patriots from the formation of the American Football League in the 1960s; through the development of a strong, title-contending team and the near-misses of the 1970s; the ups and downs and the initial Super Bowl trips in the 1980s and 1990s; and the great successes that the team achieved in the Super Bowl wins and perfect regular season in the era from 2001 to the present. Also included are in-depth interviews with 16 key players and contributors to Patriots” and NFL history.

Vin Femia is a graduate of Holy Cross and also the author of “The Possible Dream.” Copies of “Patriot Pride” will be available for purchase and signing. Femia will donate a portion of the proceeds to two charities: the ALS Association, which helps patients who have been stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease, and IMEC, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide quality medical equipment to health care facilities aiding the poor in developing countries.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the library at 1-508-366-3050.
