The resilience and courage of the victims of the Boston Marathon have inspired us all, and thanks to authors Dave Wedge and Casey Sherman, their stories can be told to the world in "Boston Strong", the gripping book on which the movie "Patriots Day", starring Mark Wahlberg, is based. We talked to Wedge this week about what compelled him to join Sherman in telling survivors' stories and got a little inside scoop on what it's like to work with Hollywood. Wedge and Sherman will also be honored tonight at Alba in Quincy (or the Mighty Q as I like to call it.)
I worked with Wedge at the Herald for many years, and I've always been proud to call him a colleague and a friend. - LBF
