CNN correspondent and veteran journalist Tom Foreman will discuss his book, My Year of Running Dangerously: A Dad, a Daughter, and a Ridiculous Plan, in conversation with author Dale Phillips, who facilitates the Tewksbury Library’s Writers Group. Foreman’s book shares his remarkable journey from half-hearted couch potato to ultra-marathon runner, with four half-marathons, three marathons, and 2,000 miles of training in between. It is a poignant and warm-hearted tale of parenting, overcoming the challenges of age, and quiet triumph. Foreman is an Emmy award-winning journalist whose experience spans more than three decades, and touches virtually every major news story in that time period. He joined CNN in 2004 and is based in the network’s Washington, D.C. bureau, where he covers a wide-range of topics for the network and reports for programs across the spectrum, from The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer to Anderson Cooper 360º. Dale T. Phillips, who studied writing with Stephen King, has published novels, over 70 short stories, collections, articles, jokes, and poetry, and has appeared on stage, television, and in an independent feature film. He has also appeared on two nationally televised quiz shows, “Jeopardy” and “Think Twice.” Phillips co-wrote and acted in a short political satire film, “The Nine.”
