Replaced in her job by a younger woman, Susan flies to Florence on a whim.

Author talk with Jeffrey Sussman, author of “Max Baer and Barney Ross, Jewish Heroes of Boxing”

Author talk with Jeffrey Sussman, author of “Max Baer and Barney Ross, Jewish Heroes of Boxing”

Sat
12/3
1-3 PM

In the 1920s and 30s, anti-Semitism was rife in the United States and Europe. Jews needed symbols of strength and demonstrations of courage against their enemies, and they found both in two champions of boxing: Max Baer and Barney Ross. Baer was the only Jewish heavyweight champion in the twentieth century, while Ross was considered one of the greatest welterweight and lightweight champions of the era. Although their careers never crossed paths, their boxing triumphs played a common role in lifting the spirits of persecuted Jews.

Jeffrey Sussman is the author of ten non-fiction books, as well as numerous articles and short stories about boxing. He is a regular writer for the premier boxing website www.boxing.com. Sussman is the president of a public relations and marketing firm based in New York City (www.powerpublicity.com).

Author Talk, Wendy Raebeck “Expedition Costa Rica”

Though Amagansett was home, Wendy Raebeck always felt distant lands pulling her away. Now frequent visits back to family are highlights of every season, and she stays closely connected to this wonderful place—most especially to Charlie, her iconic  94-year-old father.  With pen as traveling companion, Wendy has recorded numerous misadventures, tribulations, romances, and musings. Along the wayward path, she’s   taken a decent bite out of life, and her books let the reader ride shotgun.  With two books published (“Some Swamis are Fat” and “I Did Inhale—Memoir of a Hippie Chick”), she has several more in the works for 2016-17, all capsulizing highlights from various incarnations.
Her most recent book, “Expedition Costa Rica,” is a journal by one of three females in a group of more than twenty–somehow survived a phenomenal amount of rain, river-crossings, mold, sweat, and tears. The book was written during the actual journey, most often beside a campfire in the rain. And when the group walked out of the jungle, the completed manuscript was in the author’s backpack.
Wendy Raebeck now resides on Kaua`i where things are relatively calm. It’s a problem…

Author Talk: Ken McGorry, “Ghost Hampton”

Local Author, Ken McGorry will be discussing his latest book “Ghost Hampton” at The East Hampton Library Saturday October 1st at 1 PM
Lyle Hall, the most resented man in town, was also Bridgehampton’s most successful real estate lawyer. But his catastrophic car accident last year changed all that and forced his retirement. And it allowed him to see and hear things no one else could. That’s how Lyle met Jewel, the beautiful Victorian girl who appeared to him outside the long-ago brothel the Town of Southampton is about to tear down. The Victorian girl who’s been dead 100 years. And who told Lyle exactly when his own daughter, a local police detective, will die. She’s shown him Georgie’s headstone. Georgie has four days to live. Unless this is some kind of hoax. But the hordes of paranormal enthusiasts descending on Bridgehampton believe Lyle. And so does his new nemesis — a scheming TV reporter in high heels.

“A powerful tale about family, forgiveness, and, ultimately, salvation”. (Kirkus Reviews)
“Brimming with otherworldly creepiness.  You won’t be able to put this book down.” (Dan’s Papers)
