September 23rd @ 7:00PM:  To help launch the publication of the paperback edition of The Dynasty, Jeff Benedict’s definitive inside story of the New England Patriots, the Ridgefield Library and Books on the Common are pleased to host Jeff in conversation with his friend, Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi.

It’s easy to forget that the New England Patriots were once the laughingstock of the NFL, a nearly bankrupt team that had never won a championship.  Everything changed in 1994, when Robert Kraft acquired the franchise and soon brought on board head coach Bill Belichick and Quarterback Tom Brady. Since then, the Patriots have become a juggernaut, making ten trips to the Superbowl, winning six of them, and becoming one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world.  In Dynasty, Jeff provides a sweeping account of the two decades of the Patriots dominance based on exclusive interviews with more than 200 insiders.

Please register to attend.  This event will be in-person at the library. ALL patrons must wear masks that cover nose and mouth at all times while in the Library, regardless of vaccination status, per the Town of Ridgefield and Governor Lamont’s Executive Order 13A. Masks must conform to current CDC recommendations
