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.

Author Talk Ziva Bakman-Flamhaft “War Widow”

Join us for a talk with Ziva Bakman-Flamhaft, author of War Widow: How the Six Day War Changed My Life.

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.
