Meet the Author: Larry DiCara @ Marion Music Hall
Aug 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Former Boston City Council President Lawrence DiCara to Speak
Join us for an evening of politics and prose with former Boston City Council President and part-time Marion resident Larry DiCara on Friday, August 14th, 7PM at the Marion Music Hall.  Mr. DiCara will be signing and discussing his book, Turmoil and Transition in Boston: a Political Memoir from the Busing Era. Copies of the book will be available for purchase (cash or check only, please).

Mr. DiCara’s book, Turmoil and Transition in Boston, offers insights into his personal and political story as the youngest person ever elected to the Boston City Council. Mr. DiCara’s story is intimately woven into the fate of his hometown of Boston. Then a federal court order mandating busing to achieve racial integration in the public schools ripped apart the city and changed the course of history.

Mr. DiCara shows how public policy decisions and economic and demographic changes from that time transformed Boston into one of America’s most diverse, affluent, and successful cities in the twenty-first century.
