Currently reading: The Prince of Providence by Mike Stanton
This weekend I started reading Mike Stanton's book called The Prince of Providence which is based on the life of Buddy Cianci, the former mayor of Providence, who is currently in jail. The book was released when we used to live in Providence and I bought it then as well, but am only now getting to read it. Buddy Cianci is the man who brought Providence back on the map, turning a decripit and has-been city into a thriving center for the arts and a city that now prides itself in preserving it's history and culture.
