Meet the Author Dave Wedge

November 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Football fans have seen it time and time again: when Tom Brady’s at the helm, a game isn’t over until it’s over. That was never more evident than in Super Bowl LI, when Brady led the greatest Super Bowl comeback of all time. It was the finale to an incredibly tumultuous season that had started with Brady sitting out the first four games, suspended by the NFL for “Deflategate.” This is where our story begins.

Join us as author Dave Wedge talks about Tom Brady, the New England Patriots, the National Football League, and the final comeback.

DAVE WEDGE is a New York Times bestselling author and writer based in Boston. He has co-written books with acclaimed author Casey Sherman, including Boston Strong: A City’s Triumph Over Tragedy, a non-fiction drama about the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombings adapted for the 2017 movie Patriots Day and The Ice Bucket Challenge: Pete Frates and the Fight Against ALS, which was released in October 2017. Published in July, 12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Fight for Redemption landed on the New York Times bestseller list.

Dave also writes for VICE and was an award-winning investigative journalist for the Boston Herald for 14 years.
