This show is performed in Grammelot, a universal gibberish language first developed by traveling clowns and minstrels during The Middle Ages. It consists of a few real words from various languages, and lots of nonsense sounds in between. Grammelot cut through the many language barriers that existed back in those days of isolated villages and hamlets. It serves Alex today, as he often works abroad.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Norfolk Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Josh Funk presents the storytime launch event for "Dear Dragon: A Pen Pal Tale"
The Concord Bookshop, Saturday, September 10 at 11am
Please join us on Saturday, September 10 at 11am for a very special children's book launch event. Josh Funk will be here to read his hot-off-the-presses new picture book, Dear Dragon!

A clever picture book in verse about looking past external differences to make friends with the person (or dragon) underneath.

George’s and Blaise’s teachers assign them to be pen pals. Through letters back and forth about their families, hobbies, and pets, they find that they have a lot in common. But what the reader knows—and they do not—is that one of them is a little boy, and one of them is a little dragon! What will happen when these two friends finally meet face-to-face?

Josh Funk lives in Concord with his wife and children and works as a computer programmer. He is a board member of The Writers’ Loft in Sherborn, MA, and the co-coordinator of the 2016 and 2017 New England Regional SCBWI Conferences. He’s the author of Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast and Pirasaurs!, and more. (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)
