INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the East Hampton’s Library’s 2017 Tom Twomey Lecture Series. This free lecture series, now in its third year, was inspired by, and is dedicated to, Tom Twomey, who led this institution for 16 years. This year’s program focuses on topics of great interest to the East End community – architecture, landscape design, the environment, local history and government, real estate, and food and wine are covered in eight sessions over eight months, beginning in March.

To bring  a predictable cadence to the schedule, nearly all the talks this year are the third Thursday of every month (with the exception of the first talk on Wednesday, March 15th). Each hour- long talk begins promptly at 6 pm and includes a short question and answer period. Admission is free, and no reservations are required this year.

Special thanks to East Hampton Library Board  members Sara Davison and Brooke Kroeger, and to Rick and Belinda Gilbert, who diligently sought out interesting topics and speakers for this series.

The series website www.TomTwomeySeries.org provides further information about each speaker and topic, including related study materials. Full length videos of all the 2015 and 2016 lectures can also be found on the website.

With appreciation to our distinguished speakers, and our loyal audiences, we hope you enjoy the 2017 program!
