Join us for a talk with  Diane B. Saxton,  author of “Peregrine Island”

Set on a privately owned island in the middle of Long Island Sound, Diane B. Saxton’s award-winning novel “Peregrine Island” is a psychologically complex mystery that interweaves the stories of three generations of women, one valuable painting, the artist who created it, and those who would do anything to possess it–even kill.

Diane B. Saxton was a journalist with Vanity Fair, Holiday Magazine, Huffington Post and Greenwich Review.  A new chapter opened up for her after interviewing Amnesty International US founder Hannah Grunwald. Alarmed that the stories of incredible and influential lives such as Grunwald’s could be lost as the Greatest Generation passes, Saxton began capturing their histories and complied them into a 1,000 page biographical collection, which became the inspiration for her next novel. She brings the same gift for storytelling with illuminating subtext to her debut novel Peregrine Island. Saxton divides her time between New York City and the Berkshires, where she lives with her husband, doges and horses.

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…
