AUTHOR TALK:TOM BATOR
Weston Public Library, Thursday, September 29 at 8pm

The Boston Trustee tells the story of a unique Boston institution – men and women who serve as individual professional trustees and are known universally as “Boston Trustees.” To understand the Boston Trustees is in large part to understand what makes Boston and the Boston Brahmins exceptional.
Tom Bator is a partner in the private trustee office of Nichols & Pratt, LLP and is a member of that Firm’s investment committee and management committee. He is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC).

Wendy Garling presents "The Stars at Dawn: Forgotten Stories of Women in the Buddha's Life"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, October 2 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, October 2 at 3pm, when Concord-based author Wenday Garling presents her new book, "Stars at Dawn."

This is a contemporary and provocative examination of the life of the Buddha highlighting the influence of women from his journey to awakening through his teaching career—based on overlooked or neglected stories from ancient source material.

In this retelling of the ancient legends of the women in the Buddha’s intimate circle, lesser-known stories from Sanskrit and Pali sources are for the first time woven into an illuminating, coherent narrative that follows his life from his birth to his parinirvana or death. Interspersed with original insights, fresh interpretations, and bold challenges to the status quo, the stories are both entertaining and thought-provoking—some may even appear controversial. Focusing first on laywomen from the time before the Buddha’s enlightenment—his birth mother and stepmother, his co-wives, and members of his harem when he was known as Prince Siddhartha—then moving on to the Buddha’s first female disciples, early nuns, and to female patrons, Wendy Garling invites us to open our minds to a new understanding of their roles.

Linda Booth Sweeney presents "The Climate Change Playbook"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, October 16 at 3pm
The simple, interactive exercises in "The Climate Change Playbook" can help citizens better understand climate change, diagnose its causes, anticipate its future consequences, and effect constructive change.

Advocates and teachers often find it difficult to communicate the complexities of climate change, because the people they are trying to reach hold so many mistaken assumptions. They assume, for example, that when climate change becomes an obvious threat to our everyday lives, there will still be time enough to make changes that will avoid disaster. Yet at that point it will be too late. Or they assume we can use our current paradigms and policy tools to find solutions. Yet the approaches that caused damage in the first place will cause even more damage in the future.

Even the increasingly dire warnings from scientists haven’t shaken such assumptions. Is there another way to reach people?

Adapted from "The Systems Thinking Playbook," the twenty-two games are now specifically relevant to climate-change communications and crafted for use by experts, advocates, and educators. Illustrated guidelines walk leaders through setting each game up, facilitating it, and debriefing participants. Users will find games that are suitable for a variety of audiences—whether large and seated, as in a conference room, or smaller and mobile, as in a workshop, seminar, or meeting. (TooFondOfBooks)

Jerry Thornton presents "From Darkness to Dynasty: The First 40 Years of the New England Patriots"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, October 27 at 7pm
Love them or hate them, what the New England Patriots have been able to do over the past fifteen years is nothing short of remarkable. In addition to their four Super Bowl championships, the Patriots have the best coach in the league, a smart and savvy front office, and a future Hall of Fame quarterback who is internationally recognized as the face of the NFL. The longer the Patriots continue to dominate on the field as well as in the media and the American pop culture landscape, the harder it becomes for anyone to remember them as something other than a model franchise and the ultimate paradigm of success and accomplishment.

Anyone, that is, except for Jerry Thornton. It wasn’t always sunshine and roses for the Patriots; in fact, for the bulk of their existence, it was exactly the opposite. Though difficult to fathom now, the New England Patriots of old weren’t just bad—they were laughably bad. Not so long ago, the Pats were the laughingstock of not only the NFL but also the entire sporting world.

From Darkness to Dynasty tells the unlikely history of the New England Patriots as it has never been told before. From their humble beginnings as a team bought with rainy-day money by a man who had no idea what he was doing to the fateful season that saw them win their first Super Bowl, Jerry Thornton shares the wild, humiliating, unbelievable, and wonderful stories that comprised the first forty years of what would ultimately become the most dominant franchise in NFL history.

Witty, hilarious, and brutally honest, From Darkness to Dynasty returns to the thrilling, perilous days of yesteryear—a welcome corrective for those who hate the Patriots and a useful reminder for those who love them that all glory is fleeting.

Jerry Thornton is cohost of the daily Dale and Holley Show on WEEI, Boston’s leading sports radio station and one of the first writers for Barstool Sports. In addition, Jerry is a standup comic who won the Boston Comedy Riot competition and has worked colleges and clubs all around New England. He has appeared on HBO's Emmy Award-winning "Curse of the Bambino" and Comcast Sports New England. (TooFondOfBooks)
