Author Talks

The Planter of Modern LifeThis Author Visit with Stephen Heyman is brought to NSPL by the graciousness of The Rogers Memorial Library, Southampton History Museum and the East End Public Libraries Collaboration Project.

A Zoom Author Visit with Stephen Heyman, author of The Planter of Modern Life

Wednesday, September 30, 5:30 PM

Rogers Memorial Library & Southampton History Museum present: Louis Bromfield was a World War I ambulance driver, a Paris expat, and a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist as famous as Hemingway or Fitzgerald. But he cashed in his literary success to finance a wild agrarian dream in his native Ohio, and the ideas he planted at his utopian experimental farm, Malabar, would inspire America’s first generation of organic farmers and popularize the tenets of environmentalism years before Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. This sweeping biography unearths a lost icon of American culture, a fascinating, hilarious and unclassifiable character who — between writing and plowing — also dabbled in politics and high society. Through it all, Bromfield fought for an agriculture that would enrich the soil and protect the planet. While his name has faded into obscurity, his mission is more critical today than ever.

Author Talks

The Margot AffairThis Sanaë Lemoine Author Talk is brought to NSPL by the graciousness of The Rogers Memorial Library, and the East End Public Libraries Collaboration Project.

A Zoom Author Visit with Sanaë Lemoine, author of The Margot Affair

Wednesday, October 21, 12:00 PM

Margot Louve is a secret: the child of a longstanding affair between an influential French politician with presidential ambitions and a prominent stage actress. This hidden family exists in stolen moments in a small Parisian apartment on the Left Bank.

Sanaë Lemoine’s debut novel, a New York Times Editors’ Choice, is “Gorgeous…(she) writes in lush, lyrical prose that perfectly captures the heightened emotion and confusion of being a young woman with a bruised heart and limited experience. Though the book seems to be about an absent father, it’s more about a tricky mother, and about motherhood in general. It asks the ultimate question about this most complicated of relationships: What will a mother do for her child?”—Sarah Lyall, The New York Times
