The Tuxedo Park Library's Authors’ Circle presents James Kaplan – author of Sinatra: The Chairman - Saturday September 24 - 11am
Posted: 9/19/16

The Tuxedo Park Library Authors’ Circle presents:  Sinatra: The Chairman by James Kaplan on Saturday, September 24th at 11:00am at the Tuxedo Park Library. This event was originally planned for January 24th but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.

In this acclaimed  biography of Frank Sinatra -- which completes the two-volume work begun by him in Frank: The Voice - James Kaplan traces Sinatra's incredibly dense life after his 1955 comeback Oscar for his performance in "From Here to Eternity" : in between recording albums and singles, many of them truly immortal, he often shot four or five movies a year; did TV show and nightclub appearances; started his own label, Reprise; and juggled his considerable commercial ventures (movie production, the restaurant business, even prizefighter management) alongside his famous and sometimes notorious social activities and commitments

During the presentation, participants will listen to important songs recorded by Frank Sinatra and learn how the recordings came about and their impact on American popular music.  Kaplan will also answer audience questions about the book and Sinatra's epic American life.  

Seating is limited.  Please call the Tuxedo Park Library at 351-2207 or email tuxpl@rcls.org to register.  The book, Sinatra: The Chairman, will be available for purchase at the library

The Tuxedo Park Library Authors’ Circle present Stacey Goergen and Amanda Benchley, authors of Artists Living With Art - June 12
Posted: 6/6/16

Tuxedo Park, NY: Sunday, June 12, 2016 at 3:00pm the Tuxedo Park Library Authors’ Circle will proudly present Stacey Goergen and Amanda Benchley, authors of Artists Living With Art.

With original interviews and nearly 200 photographs by world-renowned editorial photographer Oberto Gili, ARTISTS LIVING WITH ART offers an intimate tour of 25 homes including Cindy Sherman’s duplex penthouse, Laurie Simmons and Carroll Dunham’s redbrick Georgian, Rashid Johnson’s brownstone, Ugo Rondinone’s apartment in a former Baptist church, and Helen and Brice Marden’s restored manor. Each home reflects friendships, inspirations, and a wide range of collections, including paintings, drawing, ceramics, textiles, and natural objects.

These unforgettable homes are a testament to a refined and adventurous aesthetic that comes from being fully immersed in creating and collecting. In the living room of Francesco Clemente’s Greenwich Village townhouse, a Joseph Beuys sculpture sits on a Frank Lloyd Wright table. In Chuck Close’s NoHo penthouse, shelves of portraits, including a photograph by Cindy Sherman and a painting by Alex Katz, fill the foyer. In Glenn Ligon’s bedroom in his Lower Manhattan apartment, a poster from a 1968 Memphis strike hangs among works by Richard Prince and Roni Horn. It is in these profound juxtapositions that the authors find new insight.

In a foreword by museum curator and art historian Robert Storr and text by independent curator Stacey Goergen and filmmaker and journalist Amanda Benchley, ARTISTS LIVING WITH ART contemplates what is unique and inspiring about the way artists collect, live with, and make art.

About the authors:

STACEY GOERGEN is an independent curator and journalist. She was the codirector of SmartSpaces, a nonprofit organization that installed contemporary art in vacant urban locations. Previously, she worked in the curatorial department at the Whitney Museum of American Art. She has published in Whitney Museum catalogs, the Wall Street Journal, Gotham Magazine, Hamptons Magazine, and Art Basel Miami Beach Magazine. She has also produced art-related television programming for Plum TV. She serves on the boards of The Drawing Center, Princeton University Art Museum, and Friends of Hudson River Park, and she is a member of the Madison Square Park curatorial committee.

AMANDA BENCHLEY is an independent filmmaker and journalist. She has produced short films for the History Channel at the New-York Historical Society, the Chicago History Museum, and the Smithsonian Institute, and her writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Observer, and the Huffington Post. She serves on the board of the Maysles Documentary Center.

OBERTO GILI is a highly acclaimed photographer who, during his 40-year career, has been one of the most prolific lenses in the world of editorial photography, with his images of fashion and interiors appearing in such magazines as Architectural Digest, House & Garden, Town & Country, and Vogue. His most recent book is Valentino: At the Emperor’s Table (2014).

The Authors' Circle Presents Janet Wallach Sunday, March 10, 3pm

Join us at the Tuxedo Park Library on Sunday, March 10th at 3pm, for a presentation from famed biographer Janet Wallach. Ms. Wallach will discuss her newest book The Richest Woman in America: Hetty Green in the Gilded Age. Seating is limited; please call the library at 351-2207 to register.

When Hetty Green died in 1916, she was worth at least 100 million dollars, or more than two billion in 2012 currency. In her newest book The Richest Woman in America: Hetty Green in the Gilded Age, New York City native and famed biographer, Janet Wallach captures the nuance of Green’s fascinating life against the backdrop of the Gilded Age, an era marked by government scandal and financial crises. Janet Wallach’s fascinating exploration of this complex woman reveals striking parallels between repeated financial crisis and today’s recession woes.

This is “forgotten history” at its finest and has appeal for history buffs, woman readers, and today’s business tycoons, who just might learn a thing or two from Hetty Green.

As always, your support is appreciated.

Tuxedo Park Library receives Greater Hudson Heritage Network Award for Excellence

Tuxedo Park Library Named Recipient of Award for Excellence for "Tuxedo Park: Lives,
Legacies, Legends"

Tuxedo Park, NY (09/07/2011) - The Tuxedo Park Library is a recipient of the Greater
Hudson Heritage Network Award for Excellence for the publication of "Tuxedo Park: Lives, Legacies, Legends," by Chiu Yin Hempel, in recognition of the continued effort to bring the rich histoly of Tuxedo and its residents to life. The award will be given at the GHHN Annual Meeting on October 14th at the West Point Museum.

Author and Tuxedo Park resident Chiu Yin Hempel set out to answer the intriguing questions: who were the people who lived in the period houses? Who were the laborers who built the mansions, winding roads and endless stonewalls? What were their lives like, and how did they fit into what was happening in America at the time? Did their deeds have any significance that transcends time? Relying on personal interviews with descendants of the original settlers, some of whom still reside in Tuxedo, Hempel unearthed a treasure trove of family histories, private photographs, and memorabilia.

"Tuxedo Park: Lives, Legacies, Legends," is available for sale from the Tuxedo Park Libraly and on Amazon, for $80. Proceeds from the book are split between the Tuxedo Park Library and the Tuxedo Park Fire Department.

The Tuxedo Park Library is an association public library serving the 3,624 residents of the Town of Tuxedo. To find out more, please visit www.tuxedoparklibrary.org.

The Greater Hudson Heritage Network's Awards For Excellence program seeks to recognize and commend exceptional efforts among GHHN members.

The Authors’ Circle Proudly Presents Meet Author Amy Plum

Die for Me
Saturday, June 11th
4 pm

Review of the book from the March 1 issue of Booklist:
"Move over, Bella and Edward. Zombies replace vampires in this well-crafted paranormal romance. After the tragic death of their parents, Kate and her older sister, Georgia, move to Paris. Georgia fits into the party scene immediately, but Kate continues to grieve and brood until she meets the dashingly handsome Vincent. Although their attraction is immediate and intense, Kate is uneasy, even wary. Through a narrative that alternates between romance and violence, Kate and the reader are introduced not only to contemporary Paris but to a war-torn netherworld populated by zombies who save people from death and other beings who plot to kill them. In her debut novel, Plum deftly navigates the real world and the fantastical. Her characters are authentic, and their romances are believable. Plum introduces a world and a story that are sure to intrigue teen readers and will easily attract fans of the Twilight series."

Books will be available for purchase and autographs after the program.

Twenty of the firm’s residential projects are featured in this sumptuously illustrated volume, ranging from a triplex on New York’s Fifth Avenue to a Spanish Colonial Revival house in San Francisco, from a farmhouse in the Virginia countryside to a ranch in New Mexico. Guided by Anne Walker’s illuminating text, the reader can count on deriving a great appreciation for the firm’s impeccable implementation of classical traditions and skillful adaptation of timeless design to the exigencies of modern life.
