Author Talk – Sparrow Beach – Shelby (Skip) Raebeck

Join us in welcoming author Shelby (Skip) Raebeck as he discusses his novel, Sparrow Beach!

Living on Long Island’s fast-developing East End, local builder Michael Dorian is forced to reckon: with a building industry being overrun by Manhattan developers; with a failing marriage and teenage daughter riddled with anxiety; with the nature of a hauntingly beautiful place that offers opportunity but no longer feels like home. Sparrow Beach is about the dark cloud of excess that threatens to consume Long Island’s East End, and about the patchwork of characters that live beneath it, those who adapt, finding new paths amidst the changing landscape, and those who refuse to.

Author Talk: Jeffrey Sussman, “Boxing & The Mob: The Notorious History of the Sweet Science”

Author Talk and Signing, Jeffrey Sussman “Boxing and the Mob: The Notorious History of the Sweet Science”

In Boxing and the Mob: The Notorious History of the Sweet Science, Jeffrey Sussman tells the story of the coercive and criminal underside of boxing, covering nearly the entire twentieth century. He profiles some of its most infamous characters, such as Owney Madden, Frankie Carbo, and Frank Palermo, and details many of the fixed matches in boxing’s storied history. In addition, Sussman examines the influence of the mob on legendary boxers—including Primo Carnera, Sugar Ray Robinson, Max Baer, Carmen Basilio, Sonny Liston, and Jake LaMotta—and whether they caved to the mobsters’ threats or refused to throw their fights.

Boxing and the Mob is the first book to cover a century of fixed fights, paid-off referees, greedy managers, misused boxers, and the mobsters who controlled it all. True crime and the world of boxing are intertwined with absorbing detail in this notorious piece of American history. (provided by Publisher)

Jeffrey Sussman is the author of thirteen nonfiction books, as well as numerous articles and short stories about boxing. He is a regular writer for the premier boxing website www.boxing.com and the author of Max Baer and Barney Ross: Jewish Heroes of Boxing (2016) and Rocky Graziano: Fists, Fame, and Fortune (2018), both published by Rowman & Littlefield. Sussman is the president of a public relations and marketing firm based in New York City

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.
