• "Politics and Pasta"

Ford Hall Forum book discussion

6:30 - 8 p.m. Thursday, May 19, 2011
C. Walsh Theatre
55 Temple St., Boston

The Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University presents "Politics and Pasta" featuring Buddy Cianci.

Cianci, a champion of inner-city revitalization, served as the mayor of Providence for an unprecedented 21 years, turning it into the Renaissance City through sustainable urban renewal. While his tenure was marred with controversy, including a forced resignation and conviction, Cianci is still in the public eye through his daily radio and TV shows and might even be considering another run for mayor.

Ford Hall Forum President Dominick Ianno will lead the discussion.

Cianci will be signing and selling copies of his memoir, “Politics and Pasta: How I Prosecuted Mobsters, Rebuilt a Dying City, Dined with Sinatra, Spent Five Years in a Federally Funded Gated Community, and Lived to Tell the Tale.
