Continue reading below

The Millis Public Library will host father-son “Team Hoyt” for a presentation and book signing Saturday at 1 p.m. Dick Hoyt, a retired lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard, and son Rick, a quadriplegic with cerebral palsy who graduated from Boston University and became a computer lab worker, take part in road races and other events around the country promoting their motto, “Yes You Can.” With Dick pushing Rick in his wheelchair, the Hoyts have participated in more than 1,100 athletic events around the world in the last 34 years, including the Boston Marathon 31 times. Team Hoyt gives corporate and community presentations to educate the public about disabilities and encourage awareness. To learn more about their story, visit www.teamhoyt.com . Their presentation next weekend is part of the “Millis Reads” program, a joint venture by the school system and the library to encourage community collaboration and dialogue through reading. This year’s program, which started last month and continues through January, is focused around a book by Paul Tough, “How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character.” The first discussion on the book is slated for 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the library.
