On Saturday, June 22, The Independent’s IndyLit series continued at the Southampton Inn with “Poached: Inside the Dark World of Wildlife Trafficking” by Rachel Nuwer. A conversation with the author was moderated by The Independent’s managing editor Bridget LeRoy. A book signing followed the talk and presentation with Southampton Books.
There will be a public sale of the works of artist Beryl Bernay-Kossovskaya on Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20, from 10 AM to 4 PM at 18 Neck Path in East Hampton. Many of the diverse selection of paintings and photographs by the long-time Springs resident were inspired by her United Nations foreign correspondent assignments. Other works reflect her love of the area’s light and ambience, while some included pen-and-ink sketches of Paris, New York City, and her 1940s fashion designs.
