Friends, family, confidants! I need your help. On my thirty-seventh birthday this April, I'll be fulfilling a lifelong dream of running the Boston Marathon in support of the Boston Public Library.
As many of you know, the BPL is near and dear to my heart. Jenny and I were married at the BPL. I wrote my first book at the BPL. I currently serve on the BPL's Emerging Leaders board. And, above all, as a writer and dad to two little book-lovers, I believe deeply in the BPL's mission.
The BPL isn't just about library cards and books. The central branch along with its many satellite branches serve the community in many ways, helping folks in search of housing, jobs, immigration assistance, and cultural enrichment. The BPL is an essential park of what makes Boston one of the best cities in the country.
So please join me in the journey. I'm grateful for your support and will try to make you proud as I pound the pavement towards the finish line!
