SBPRA’s Author of the Month for September 2015: Michael McLean , Author of “The Irish King of Winter Hill”

978-1-62516-669-2-MMcLeanCover[1]Johnny Depp plays Whitey Bulger in Black Mass this month. Before Whitey Bulger was the head of The Winter Hill Gang, it was run by the founder, Buddy McLean. Michael McLean is the son of Buddy McLean and wrote The Irish King of Winter Hill. This book sheds light on this explosive period of history that happened on the streets and docks of Boston fifty years ago.

Says author Michael McLean, “I have read all the books and the information on the Internet about my father, and most of it is wrong. After Michael-McLean[1]talking to his closest friends, I decided I would set the record straight.” The book outlines the rise of Buddy McLean from his humble beginnings as a hardworking truck driver, to leading the now infamous Winter Hill Gang, to his murder in 1965.

Love-Circles-PosterAbout the Book

Love Circles is a riveting account of sexual revenge and betrayal played out over twenty-five years in the lives of three men, friends who have managed to stay friends, and are now happily married.

They meet at a newly built jazz club to reminisce on all the bad relationships they have had over the years, times when they were living in a vicious love circle of life.

Yet they still remained loyal to each other, despite all the other friends who betrayed them over the decades.

The three have triumphed over all obstacles by learning that God is the only one who really gets revenge. The story follows Lenny, Richard, and Nathan as they learn things the hard way when their lives were put in danger. Will they prevail?

Racial Justice Book Group: Birth of a White Nation by Jacqueline Battalora

On Tuesday, July 28, 7-9 p.m., join a discussion of chapters 3 and 4 of Birth of a White Nation: The Invention of White People and Its Relevance Today, a fascinating new book on race in America that begins with an exploration of the moment in time when “white people,” as a separate and distinct group of humanity, were invented through legislation and the enactment of laws. The book provides a thorough examination of the underlying reasons as well as the ways in which “white people” were created. It also explains how the creation of this distinction divided laborers and ultimately served the interests of the elite. The book goes on to examine how foundational law and policy in the U.S. were used to institutionalize the practice of “white people” holding positions of power. Finally, the book demonstrates how the
