Athlete Alberto Salazar, who won the Boston Marathon in 1982, was at the Boston Public Library on Sunday to discuss his new memoir, “14 Minutes,’’ which is named for the 14 minutes he was clinically dead after suffering a heart attack in 2007. Salazar, who appeared at the library with his “14 Minutes’’ coauthor, John Brant, is also one of two subjects in Brant’s book “Duel in the Sun,’’ which followed Salazar and competitor Dick Beardsley through the ’82 race and its aftermath.
