"The Fight to Save Our Libraries" Author Talk @ Central

"The Fight to Save Our Libraries" Author Talk @ Central

Author Linda Kushner speaks about her part in the controversial split between PPL and what would become Providence Community Library, now renamed Community Libraries of Providence.

With a small group of reformers, Linda launched a five year battle garnering  the support of thousands of Rhode Islanders. It ended in 2009 with the creation of a new community library system which preserved all of Providence’s nine neighborhood libraries.

Linda is a retired attorney who represented the East Side as a state legislator for 12 years, from 1982 to 1994. Always a problem solver and social organizer, in 2004 Linda turned her attention to the neighborhood libraries which were in danger of being extinguished.

Copies of the book will be on sale at the event.
