Ross School and BookHampton are co-sponsoring the first-ever Ross Authors Night on Friday, May 31, at 5 PM. Ross parents, grandparents, and alumni who are authors will gather at BookHampton in East Hampton to sign books, answer questions, and read from their works.
Authors include Emma Walton Hamilton, Susan Verde, and Chris Babu. Dr. Jane Aronson, a leading humanitarian in the field of orphan care, will discuss her book “Carried in Our Hearts: The Gift of Adoption,” which presents first-person testimonies from families whose lives have been blessed by adoption, including Ross parents Deborra-Lee and Hugh Jackman. Ellora Decarlo, a Ross parent who contributed her own story to Dr. Aronson’s book, will join her. Decarlo, an actor/writer/producer, is also the co-founder and president of Futuro de los Ninos Foundation and co-founder of the Guatemala900 Movement.
Signed books by Ross family members will also be available including works by Adriana Mather, Ross alumna and author of The New York Times bestselling “How to Hang a Witch” book series, Julie Andrews, Ross grandparent, legendary screen actress, and co-author of over 30 children’s books, and Joan Knight, Ross grandparent, translator, editor, and author of the beloved “Charlotte” children’s book series.
