On Wednesday evening, December 5, at 7:00 p.m., Cary Memorial Library will host Boston Globe columnist and author Brian McGrory. The award-winning journalist will discuss his new memoir, Buddy: How a Rooster Made Me a Family Man, a heart-warming and hilarious tale about his “head to beak” battle with a very aggressive and obnoxious rooster.
When Brian McGrory remarried, his new bride came with accessories that could not have been more exotic to the city-loving bachelor: a home in suburbia, two young daughters, two dogs, two cats, two rabbits, and a “step-rooster” named Buddy. While Buddy loved the women of the house, he took Brian's presence as an affront, doing everything he could to drive out his rival. In Buddy, McGrory describes his battle with the rooster and the important lessons that Buddy eventually taught him. This is a heartwarming, wise, and very funny tale about finding love in life’s second chapter - and how it means even more when you have to fight for it!
Brian McGrory is a longtime newspaper reporter, editor, and columnist. He has written for and edited The Boston Globe since 1989. He has a twice weekly column that appears on the front of the Metro Section, for which he has won the Scripps Howard journalism award. Mr. McGrory is also the author of four novels.
This program is free, and will be held in the Library’s Large Meeting Room. Copies of Buddy will be available for sale and signing following the program (cash or checks only). Space is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first served basis.
