South End Writes: Join the Friends of the South End Library for a lecture and power-point presentation about Boston's Fairest, the first women who were allowed to join the Boston Police Department. They were given a badge, but no uniform, weapon or 'vehicle' so had to hail a cab to get the perps to the station. Join BPD archivist Margaret Sullivan and her colleague, Sgt. Detective Dr. Kim L.
