Author Talk: Paul L.
Centerville Public Library
Monday, Aug. 15, 6pm
Come meet bestselling author Paul Clerici in person on Mon., August 15th, 6 p.m., at Centerville Public Library, 585 Main St., Centerville, as he discusses his “A History of the Falmouth Road Race,” the first and only book entirely about the great Cape Cod race.

In a new multimedia presentation, hear about how it all began in a bar; tales of the late great founder Tommy Leonard; how the race grew alongside the running boom; stories and anecdotes of Olympic stars on the roads of Falmouth; and how it continues to inspire.

In his books about the Falmouth Road Race and Boston Marathon especially, the award-winning writer takes readers through the colorful journeys of these iconic races. With his unique vast array of experiences and knowledge having run Falmouth several times, Boston 23 times, and having covered the sport for over 35 years now, Clerici brings the great races to life through informative, humorous, and enlightening detail that includes stories about every monument, landmark, moment, and portion of the courses and the histories.

A freelance journalist, photographer, and former newspaper editor, he delivers talks and lectures at libraries, historical societies, bookstores, running clubs; appears at expos, book signings, group meetings; appears on television (NECN, cable stations, etc.), radio (NPR, local and city stations, etc.), and media outlets including “The Boston Globe” and the “Cape Cod Times.” Race director of the Camy 5K Run & David 5K Walk in Walpole, he has competed in nearly every distance from the mile to the marathon – including two triathlons, 43 marathons, the Falmouth Road Race several times – and has won numerous age-group and Clydesdale running awards.
He is also the author of “Born to Coach: The Story of Bill Squires,” “Images of Modern America: The Boston Marathon,” “Boston Marathon History by the Mile,” and “History of the Greater Boston Track Club.” Books will be available to purchase and be signed by the author.
