Book Launch, Redlined; a novel of Boston
October 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
It was a very different time. The year is 1974. Jamaica Plain is a community under siege. The banks have redlined the neighborhood and destroyed property values. There are thirty-four abandoned buildings between Washington and Centre, the average life expectancy, ten days before they are vandalized, stripped of valuables and torched. Part fiction, part absolute truth, Redlined tells the gripping story of a group of JP neighbors who came together to fight and save their neighborhood.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
