‘The Doctor Broad’ At Weaver Library

(10.1) We are sending you across the river for this one. Fans of the first season of Crimetown should head over to the Weaver Library this Tuesday for an author talk by Dr. Barbara Roberts. She will be discussing her book “The Doctor Broad: A Mafia Love Story.”

Dr. Barbara Roberts, author of The Doctor Broad, was a devout Catholic schoolgirl who grew up to be a physician, an atheist, feminist, anti-war activist – as well as a Mob doctor and Mob mistress. The man she kept alive and out of prison was Raymond Patriarca, the long-time head of the New England Mafia.  A highly respected cardiologist, Dr. Roberts founded and directed the Women’s Cardiac Center at the Miriam Hospital from 2002 to 2016. She is the recipient of many awards, has written numerous books, and was named a Top Doctor for Women three times by RI Monthly.

Books will be available for sale from Books on the Square in Providence.

Free and open to the public, 7pm to 8:30pm, Tuesday, October 1, Weaver Library, 41 Grove Avenue, East Providence, (directions)
