Recovering Champions, a substance abuse treatment center with locations in Falmouth and Sandwich, announced that it will host a special screening and discussion of the acclaimed film “Patriots Day” with celebrated author Casey Sherman on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at 6 p.m. at the Falmouth Museums on the Green.
Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at http://museumsonthegreen.org/category/2017-programs/patriots-day-movie-screening/ or by phone: 508-548-4857.
“Patriots Day” starring Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Bacon, is based on Sherman’s bestselling book “Boston Strong” (with Dave Wedge) and recounts both the terrifying and inspirational moments and days following the Boston Marathon Bombings in 2013. Patriots Day was named one of the year’s best films by the National Board of Review. Boston Strong has been honored by the National Crime Museum as the definitive book on the marathon bombings. Sherman will introduce the film and participate in a Q&A session following the screening.
“We are very excited to present this important film here on Cape Cod,” said Ken Weber, CEO, Recovering Champions. “The marathon survivors continue to inspire us and show us that like people battling addiction, recovery is a journey, a marathon.”
“Addiction impacts all of us,” said author Casey Sherman. “Recovering Champions does amazing work giving people the treatment and long term tools needed to lead healthy and productive lives. I’m proud to support this worthy organization.”
Casey Sherman is an international bestselling author of ten books including “The Finest Hours”, now a major motion picture for Disney starring Chris Pine and Casey Affleck.
