Virtual Book Club

Join the Society for their Virtual Book Club as they discuss "On the East End: The Last Best Times of a Long Island Fishing Community" by Clarence Hickey. Clarence will be on hand for the discussion, with Larry Penny.

In 1970, as a young marine biologist, Clarence Hickey won a position on the staff of the New York State Ocean Sciences Laboratory, Montauk, NY. For the next five years he was involved in landmark studies of Long Island's then-thriving fisheries. He developed deep bonds with the Baymen and ocean fishers who called the East End of Long Island home and worked closely with them as he and the Ocean Sciences Lab studied the habits and prospects of more than one hundred species of fish and shellfish that call Long Island waters home. This is his loving, anguished memoir of those years, replete with vivid portraits of the traditional fishers and scientists he worked with, their habits and discoveries, and their history-suffused community. This book is Clarence Hickey's clarion call for us to preserve and revive the natural community he fell in love with when he was young.

The book is available through the Suffolk County Cooperative Library System for interlibrary loan, as well as for purchase or download on Amazon.

Society members and the public are welcome at no charge. Registration is required.

Join us for our Book Club Discussion!

"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.
