Marion — The Elizabeth Taber Library, the Mattapoisett Free Public Library and the Joseph H. Plumb Memorial Library are co-sponsoring a political discussion led by Lawrence DiCara on Friday, July 21 at 7 p.m.

The discussion, led by DiCara (a part-time Marion resident) will focus on President Trump's first six months in office, as well as what we can do as citizens to effect change regardless of political views. DiCara will discuss civic engagement, voter registration, elections, turnout and make historical comparisons.

DiCara served for 10 years on the Boston City Council, beginning as the youngest person ever elected to the council. He has been a member of the Democratic State Committee for over 40 years.

DiCara is the author of many articles for "Commonwealth Magazine" and other publications, and of "Turmoil and Transition in Boston: a Political Memoir from the Busing Era," his recently published book.
