'The Class of 1969' Book and Author Talk @ Central
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The Cranston Public Library welcomes local author and survivor of the “Bad Boys School,” Ronald J. Bernier to the Central Library to discuss his recently published memoir, The Class of 1969. For generations, families passing through the Sockanosset neighborhood threatened poorly behaved children with the fate of ending up at the “Bad Boys School”— formally known as the Rhode Island Training School. The Class of 1969 follows the story of one Rhode Island child who was not only threatened, but who actually found himself incarcerated at the Rhode Island Training School due to chronic behavioral problems brought on by a childhood full of loss and poverty. The event will feature a reading from the book, followed by a Q&A session. Copies of The Class of 1969 will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
