AUTHOR TALK: MARY KORPI

 Sunday, August 28th, 2022 at 3pm in the Community Room

Please join us in our Community Room as we host local, acclaimed author, Mary Korpi.

The Lady Lighthouse Keeper – by Mary Korpi

Published by lulu.com in February 2022 and available through the publisher, on Amazon, and local booksellers, as well as the Suffolk County Library System.

The reader will experience life on the North Fork of Long Island in the 1800s against the backdrop of the rigor required to maintain a lighthouse, Horton Point.

A fictionalized account based on the life of Stella Maria Prince Terry, the only woman to serve as a lighthouse keeper at Horton Point Lighthouse.  Stella lived at the lighthouse for more than 1/2 of her life from 1871 when she was three years of age until she married at 37.  A remarkable woman who resists society’s expectations and dedicates herself to a life of hard work out of a sense of duty.

This is Mary Korpi’s first foray into historical fiction.  She is a recent retiree to the North Fork and a docent at Horton Point Lighthouse.  Researching the lighthouse keepers, she discovered Stella. Stella’s work is yet to be recognized by the federal government, a fact that Mrs. Korpi hopes to change in the near future.

Books will be available for purchase at the event and refreshments will be served.

No registration required!


BOOK DISCUSSION – The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

Monday, August 29th, 2022 at 4pm in the Library Garden

A bestselling modern classic—both poignant and funny—about a boy with autism who sets out to solve the murder of a neighbor’s dog and discovers unexpected truths about himself and the world.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.

This improbable story of Christopher’s quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.
