GLOCESTER, R.I. -- A former member of the Foster-Glocester School Committee is being tapped to address an international conference on the life of Albino Luciani, who was Pope John Paul I for just 33 days before he died unexpectedly in 1978.

Mo Guernon, who regularly wrote columns for the Woonsocket Call, Warwick Beacon, and other papers, thinks he was asked to speak at the Oct. 12-13 gathering at New York City's Immaculate Conception center ibecause of an article he wrote on the "Forgotten Pope" for America magazine and interviews he's had with the late pope's family while preparing a biography.

Entitled "The Real Pope John Paul I," the conference will mark the 100th anniversary of Luciani's birth, featuring experts from Europe and the U.S.
