AFTER SANDY: What have we learned?
A Humanities New York Community Conversation
The Montauk Library’s STORMY WEATHER Series commemorates The Long Island Express of 1938 and other hurricanes Montauk & East End community members are invited to speak about their experiences and concerns. Free & Open to the public. Participants are asked to register at the Circulation Desk.
When Superstorm Sandy struck on October 29, 2012, it unleashed catastrophic damage up and down the East Coast. In its wake, New Yorkers came together to rebuild. This open forum reflects on how communities were transformed by Sandy. Please join us to discuss your experiences during and after Sandy and what you believe we have learned about our relationship with the seas around us.
This program is supported in part by a grant from Humanities New York. The mission of Humanities New York is to strengthen civil society and the bonds of community, using the humanities to foster engaged inquiry and dialogue around social and cultural concerns.

Her acclaimed American Miniatures series marries the stories of America in Copland’s Selected Miniatures, the personal stories in Ned Rorem’s Piano Album I, and Leonard Bernstein’s Selected Anniversaries.Her EP, The Mischlinge Exposé was released in 2016. Her 2013 Naxos recording of music by Ned Rorem was a New York Times Best Classical Recording, and Fanfare Magazine declared her “a musician of rare quality.” Music from her American Miniatures program can be heard on her debut release, In Evening Air, featuring the music of Beethoven, Copland, Hanson, Liebermann, Rorem, and Scriabin.
