"The Lost Boys of Montauk" by Amanda Fairbanks who will be joining us for the discussion.
Amanda M. Fairbanks is a journalist who has worked in the editorial department of The New York Times, as a reporter for HuffPost, and at The East Hampton Star, where she wrote investigative stories, features, and profiles. Her writing has also appeared in The Boston Globe, Newsweek, The Atlantic, and The San Francisco Chronicle. A graduate of Smith College and a former Teach for America corps member, she has two master's degrees from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, and currently lives with her family in Sag Harbor. In this book, she examines the profound shift of Montauk from a working-class village-"a drinking town with a fishing problem"-to a playground for the ultra-wealthy, seeking out the reasons that an event more than three decades old remains so startlingly vivid in people's minds. She explores the ways in which deep, lasting grief can alter people's memories through the tragedy of Wind Blown, a commercial fishing boat. And she shines a light on the powerful and sometimes painful dynamics between fathers and sons, as well as the secrets that can haunt families from beyond the grave.
The book is available through the Suffolk County Cooperative Library System for interlibrary loan, as well as for purchase or download on Amazon.

An accomplished naturalist, Mike offers a vivid pictures of the local ecologies of the trails and waterways.
