TITLE: Author Event: James P. Desrosiers "From Impossible" AB
TIME: 1-3 pm
LOCATION: Event Room
DESCRIPTION: The children's book, From Impossible, is based on the real-life relationship between the author and Ron Bouchard, a local car racing legend. It is appropriate for ages 4-9, and teaches the lessons of believing in yourself, dealing with failure, and never giving up. In the story, Jamie, lives in a town called Impossible. Jamie doesn't believe in himself and thinks achieving big goals is impossible. Until one day when Jamie goes to a local race track and sees "The Kid," a race car driver who is also from Impossible, compete in and win a race. This inspires Jamie to pursue his own goal. The story follows both Jamie and The Kid as they chase their dreams. There are local businesses referenced in the book, including Westboro Speedway, the race track where the author was first inspired by Ron Bouchard. Author James Desrosiers was born in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. He had tremendous challenges to overcome during his youth.One day his stepfather took him to Westboro Speedway, where he saw driver Ron Bouchard competing. Jim started to set goals in his school work and achieve high honors at Leominster High School. He served in the U.S. Air Force, winning awards and achieving more goals. After four years in the military, Jim returned home and started his own training and coaching company, GROWTHco. He introduced himself to Ron Bouchard and let him know the impact he made on his life. In Dec. 2015, Ron passed away and Jim wrote this book as a way to mourn and pay tribute to his lost friend. One dollar from each book purchased will be donated to the RB Racing Charity, a nonprofit, helping with the fight against cancer and to continue Ron's legacy of supporting positive activities for young people.
