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.

Join author Genie Chipps Henderson for an author talk and book signing in our Baldwin Family Lecture Room discussing her novel.

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.
