Author Talk: John Kerr, “Dreamers Before the Mast: The History of the Tall Ship Regina Maris”

John Kerr, “Dreamers Before the Mast: The History of the Tall Ship Regina Maris”

Dreamers Before the Mast chronicles the epic story of Regina Maris, a tall ship built, owned, sailed, and loved from 1908 to 2000 by people who had big dreams of ships and the sea — and made those dreams come true. Each chapter of Dreamers Before the Mast recounts the hard work and hair-raising adventures experienced by Regina’s owners, captains, crew members, scientists, and students, often in their own words through extensive interviews and excerpts from diaries and journals, letters, and the ship’s logs. All material is fully documented and the book includes a complete index and detailed appendices.

Books will be available for signing and purchase.

Movie – Killer Bees

Join the East Hampton Library as we welcome filmmakers Benjamin and Orson Cummings for a screening of their documentary, Killer Bees!
Following the screening, stay for a Q&A with the filmmakers!
KILLER BEES spotlights the famed Bridgehampton basketball team as they prepare to defend their state championship title. Following the young men on and off the court, filmmakers Benjamin and Orson Cummings explore the Bees’ historical importance within the local community. More than just a high school team, the Bees are a symbol of hope—particularly to those who are struggling to survive racism, income inequality and gentrification in one of the wealthiest districts in the country. Produced by NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, KILLER BEES is a nuanced look at the powerful role sports play in overcoming adversity.

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.

2/16    1-3 PM

Author Talk: Nicholas Hirshon, “We Want Fish Sticks”

The NHL’s New York Islanders were struggling. After winning four straight Stanley Cups in the 1980s, the Islanders suffered an embarrassing sweep by their rivals, the New York Rangers, in the first round of the 1994 playoffs. Hoping for a new start, the Islanders swapped out their logo for a cartoon fisherman gripping a hockey stick, which immediately drew comparisons to the mascot for Gorton’s frozen seafood, causing opposing fans to taunt the team with chants of “We want fish sticks!”

Join author Nicholas Hirshon for an author talk and book signing as he examines this period of intense change in the team’s history.
