WOONSOCKET â€“ Neil Lanctot is coming home to give a talk about baseball great Roy Campanella at the Museum of Work & Culture on Sunday. But he wonâ€™t be thinking just about the major leagues or his work as a published author.
Lanctot, son of the late Mayor Francis L. and Claire Lanctot, will also be thinking about his native city and how growing up here gave him interests that led to his success as both a college professor and writer.
The presentation will begin at 1:30 p.m. and will be followed by a reception with refreshments.
