Book Talk: Hometown with John K. Bullard

Thurs. 10/12 7-8PM Center (38 Bethel Street, New Bedford)

Join the New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center and John K. Bullard to hear about his time as Mayor of New Bedford during a tumultuous yet significant period for the commercial fishing industry in a special presentation of his new memoir, Hometown. In this deeply moving and thoughtful memoir, Bullard weaves a tale of family legacy intertwined with the pitfalls and promise of New Bedford. Bullard explores the meaning of public service, greater good, personal responsibility, and the ties that bind people to their hometowns. He grapples with immigration, economics, race, poverty, politics, but also the innermost conflicts and ambitions as we make out way in the world. Available for purchase from Spinner Publications.
