Special Event June 13
Charles Fine Art is hosting a book launch Tuesday June 13 for the new children’s book about Bobbi, The Girl Who Ran, by Kristina Yee and Frances Poletti with illustrations by Susanna Chapman. The event is co hosted by Sawyer Free Library and The Book Store. Here’s the Kirkus Review:
“In cooperation with Gibb herself, Poletti and Yee tell the story of the first woman to run the Boston Marathon, questioning authority with her feet.
The Boston Marathon had been taking place for 70 years when Bobbi Gibb, a white woman, steps illegally to the starting line in 1966, a hoodie covering her hair. Her road there is strewn with the land mines of bias, everything from “So unladylike” to the official comments on the rejection to her application: “Women cannot run marathons. It’s against the rules.” Poletti and Yee neatly evoke the joy some find in running, simply running. Gibb “ran with her pack, going higher and higher, / the world whooshing by, like the wind in the fire.” Such couplets are found every few pages, the last four words the refrain. Readers gain a sense of the experience through Chapman’s artwork, the light-footed energy of the watercolors slipping outside the pen’s fine line, a veil of wind trailing behind Gibb. Halfway through the race her ruse is up. She is boiling in her hoodie and confides to a fellow marathoner, a black man, that she is afraid of ejection. “We won’t let anyone throw you out; it’s a free road.” Well-told and illustrated, Gibb’s story speaks to not only women’s fight for equality, but the power of community.”
After almost giving the game away the boys come back in the last of the 7th scoring twice to win in dramatic fashion….WELL DONE guys!!
Two games….GHS VS Beverly..big loss….and then a great bounce back win vs Everett.
The GHS girls play a great game and remain unbeaten in their 5th game of the season.
Fun for the players…fun for the spectators…and raised some money for Sweet Paws.
A big fun event…random photos…post #1. Post #2 will be Tomorrow AM.
GHS girls play well and run away with a big win over Winthrop.
The Fishermen come back from 11 point deficit at half time and play a great second half to win game by five. Well done guys!!
Tuesday night was senior night for Boys Hoop and Winter Cheerleaders despite the fact that the game was canceled due to the leaking roof.
The GHS girls played a tough back and forth game only to loose in last few seconds to Saugus.
The Fishermen win their 2nd straight holding on to slight lead at the end.
The Fishermen win exciting game with lead changing back and forth several times. It was a great effort.
GHS girls play with a lot of heart but loose game to Peabody.
A nice sized crowd gathered at Dorothy Talbot Rink last night to cheer on the Girls JV Fishermen as they took to the ice for their first home game of the season. It was, in fact, the first home game in many seasons as Gloucester/Rockport has been without a girls’ team for years. And, while the final scored showed them down by one, the team did not disappoint.
I watch a lot of hockey and I have to say that I couldn’t stop smiling. These girls worked hard, showed amazing spirit, and demonstrated great sportsmanship and teamwork. They should be incredibly proud of the team they’ve become and I, for one, am excited to see what the rest of the season has in store.
