The public is invited to an illustrated presentation on The 27th Mile: Going the Extra Mile to Support the Victims of The Boston Marathon Bombing, a collection of writings from local runners, including former Boston Marathon winner Amby Burfoot, explaining their passion for the sport. According to editor Ray Charbonneau, “Within this book, you’ll find stories that extol the spirit that first got us on the roads to run, that brought us to Boston on a sunny spring day, and that will bring us back to Hopkinton next year and in the years that follow. It’s the spirit we celebrate every time we go for a run, whatever the distance.” Charbonneau will also be on hand to answer questions and sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase. Proceeds from each sale will be donated to the One Fund. Learn more about the book at www.27thmile.com.
