Dan’s Papers founder and President Dan Rattiner will hold two readings this weekend from his new book, In the Hamptons 4ever, and both are open to the public and free to attend.
At each of his readings, Rattiner a different chapter of the book.
On Saturday, September 26, at 5 p.m., Rattiner will read “Memorial Day” at Main Beach, East Hampton. Rattiner says, “This recounts the day I was sitting in my car facing the ocean at East Hampton Main Beach, writing a story and being unaware of my surroundings when I became dimly aware of marching band, a ceremony, the firing of rifles. What is it?”
Then on Sunday, September 27, at 5 p.m. he will reads “Fannie Gardiner” at the East Hampton Town Pond Cemetery. Fannie Gardiner was a major town character in the East Hampton Bonac community for many years. Born into the Gardiner family, she renounced its great wealth for a more personal life among the locals. This encounter involves her attempts to stop the author from setting up an illegal ship-to-shore radio station on the roof of his house.
