Author Talk – Sag Harbor: 100 Years of Film in the Village

On December 16, 2016, the beloved Sag Harbor Cinema burned down. The 1936 Art Deco Theater may have been the latest in a long line of Sag Harbor movie houses, but it was not the first. In her new book Sag Harbor: 100 Years of Film in the Village, author and journalist Annette Hinkle pays tribute not only to the recently lost art-house cinema but also to all the movie houses that preceded it. An homage to a century of celluloid on Main Street, the book traces film history from the era of the silents to the Sag Harbor Cinema’s nearly four-decade tenure as the last independent, single screen theater in the Hamptons.

Author Talk – “Real Lace Revisited” James MacGuire

Join the East Hampton Library as we welcome author James MacGuire to discuss his book, Real Lace Revisited: Inside the Hidden World of America’s Irish Aristocracy. Real Lace Revisited chronicles the religious, financial and social evolution of the First Irish Families’ world, its rise, peak, decline, fall, and, in some cases, transformative rebirth. Rather than a memoir, however, the book reads as an informed historical, non-fiction account of the upper-class Irish world as it grew and changed. Real Lace Revisited is always accessible and highly readable, enlivened by MacGuire’s gift for storytelling, encyclopedic knowledge , and often humorous insight into the families concerned.

Dr. Ziva Bakman-Flamhaft is a lecturer in Political Science, a Fulbright scholar, and a memoirist. In 1968 as a young war widow in Israel, she    became an activist and a mentor to other war widows. A year later she arrived in the US to serve her government and remained in New York ever since. Her first book Israel on the Road to Peace:  Accepting the unacceptable was published in 1996. In addition, she has published numerous articles, book reviews and book chapters including “From Sufferers to Activists: Israeli and Palestinian Women Talk on War,     Bereavement and Peace,” and “Iron Breaks Too,” on the same subject. Two chapters from her memoir were printed in different publications. Inspired by the 2015 Nobel laureate, Svetlana Alexievich, who documented human suffering by tyranny and war, Flamhaft plans to publish her interviews of Israeli women and her Palestinian assistant in a book form.
