Author Talk: Genie Chipps Henderson, “A Day Like Any Other”

The once-scenic Dutch elm–lined main streets of the Hamptons serve as both a reminder of a more genteel time and an omen of things to come in Henderson’s keenly observed and skillfully structured historical novel. The dark cloud on the horizon is the Great New England Hurricane, which will devastate the island on September 21, 1938. The story opens on that ominous morning, then jumps back to June, when wealthy Manhattanites decamp to their summer homes and the locals grudgingly welcome their primary source of income. As Henderson subtly and cleverly ratchets up the suspense, she presents a richly textured exploration of class and society filtered through the lenses of several characters whose lives are thrown off course.

Author Talk: Nicholas Hirshon, “We Want Fish Sticks”

The NHL’s New York Islanders were struggling. After winning four straight Stanley Cups in the 1980s, the Islanders suffered an embarrassing sweep by their rivals, the New York Rangers, in the first round of the 1994 playoffs. Hoping for a new start, the Islanders swapped out their logo for a cartoon fisherman gripping a hockey stick, which immediately drew comparisons to the mascot for Gorton’s frozen seafood, causing opposing fans to taunt the team with chants of “We want fish sticks!”

Join author Nicholas Hirshon for an author talk and book signing as he examines this period of intense change in the team’s history.

Film Screening: The Learning Tree

As an African-American teen in small-town Kansas in the 1920s, Newt Winger (Kyle Johnson) largely shrugs off the racial prejudice of his time and place. His calm and self-controlled perspective is in direct opposition to that of his quick-tempered friend, Marcus Savage (Alex Clarke). But when Marcus’ father, Booker (Richard Ward), murders a man — and Newt witnesses the crime — Newt realizes that going to the police could jeopardize both his   friendship and his life.
