Secrets & Scandals: Reforming R.I.: The Friends of the EG Free Library are hosting “Secrets & Scandals: Reforming Rhode Island,” a dialogue with H. Phil West on his new book, with Robert Flanders, Richard Morsilli and Mike Lenihan. Investigative news reporter Jim Taricani will moderate this timely discussion. The book tells the inside story of events that shook Rhode Island’s culture of corruption, gave birth to the nation’s strongest ethics commission, and finally brought separation of powers in 2004. No single leader, no political party, no organization could have converted betrayals of public trust into historic reforms. But when citizen coalitions worked with dedicated public officials to address systemic failures, government West calls Flanders, Morsilli and Lenihan, who are all East Greenwich residents, “the heroes of his book.” The program is free of charge, and all are welcome. Please call 884-9510 to register for the event. Seating is limited; first come, first served.
