Author Talk: Jeff Benedict and "The Dynasty"
Join Seven Libraries in welcoming Jeff Benedict to talk about his instant bestseller on the New England Patriots, "The Dynasty".

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 and was on the brink of moving to St. Louis. 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 Super Bowl, winning six of them, and emerging as one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world. Today, the team’s twenty-year reign atop the NFL stands as the longest in league history. How was the Patriots dynasty built? And how did it last for two decades? In "The Dynasty", acclaimed journalist Jeff Benedict provides richly reported answers in a sweeping account based on exclusive interviews with more than 200 insiders, as well as never-before-seen recordings, documents, and electronic communications.

Jeff Benedict is the bestselling author of sixteen non-fiction books, including the #1 New York Times bestseller "Tiger Woods", with Armen Keteyian. His latest book, "The Dynasty", is the definitive inside story of the New England Patriots dynasty and was published in September 2020. He has also been a special-features writer for Sports Illustrated and the Los Angeles Times, and his essays have appeared in the New York Times. Benedict's stories have been the basis of segments on 60 Minutes, CBS Sunday Morning, HBO Real Sports, Discovery Channel, Good Morning America, 48 Hours, NFL Network, NPR, and ESPN’s Outside the Lines. He is also a television and film producer.
