Boston Strong

Boston Magazine has published an exclusive excerpt from the new book Boston Strong: A City’s Triumph over Tragedy (ForeEdge/University Press of New England, 2015), co-written by Boston College alumnus Dave Wedge. In the book, Wedge and co-author Casey Sherman use their journalism skills to tell the inside story of the Boston Marathon bombing. The book is based on extensive interviews with first responders, detectives assigned to the Tsarnaev brothers manhunt, recovering victims and those who lost loved ones. A film based on the book is in development. Another Boston College alumnus, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, wrote the book’s foreword.
