The John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor presented the opening of the Kenny Mann papers, a recent acquisition to the Local History Room and Special Collections. On Saturday, November 9, there was a discussion with Mann in the first of its “Afternoon at the Archives” series about how she became involved in the Sag Harbor of the ’80s and ’90s, and what she is up to now. The event featured rarely-seen photographs and video, as well as audio broadcasts, allowing viewers to see into her social and artistic community engagement over the past 32 years.
