Local author shares uplifting Phillipsdale story at the Weaver Library

Posted

The Weaver Library and the East Providence Historical Society collaborate once again to bring a special program to the community. Based on the book "Made It" by East Providence native Bernie Mulligan, the program highlights an extraordinary, local story that also captures history and lives shaped by World War II, immigration to America, the Rhode Island polio outbreak of early 1955, and the political turmoil of the 60’s and 70’s.on Monday. The Mulligans lived on Ruth Avenue in the Phillipsdale section of the city. As Made It is also a story of the character and heart of a neighborhood, the Historical Society will set the scene with a brief slide show of the Phillipsdale area.

WHERE: Weaver Library, 41 Grove Avenue, East Providence
WHEN: Monday, April 23; 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m.
COST: Free
