THE DOCTOR BROAD: a Mafia Love Story
An author talk with Doctor Barbara Roberts.
Sun, Sept. 29th at 1pm.
There are people in the know who say that Barbara Roberts caused the downfall of the New England Mafia. She did this, not by killing someone, or sending someone to jail, but by keeping someone alive, and out of prison, for about a year too long. This is the true story of a devout Catholic schoolgirl who grows up to be a physician, an atheist, feminist, anti-war activist - as well as a Mob doctor and Mob mistress. The man she keeps alive and out of prison is Raymond L. S. Patriarca, the long-time head of the New England Mafia. Please sign-up .
