The East Hampton Library will launch the third annual “Tom Twomey Series” on Wednesday, March 15.
This year’s series 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—covered in eight programs over eight months.
All programs will be presented in the Library’s Baldwin Family Lecture Room. Each one-hour program begins promptly at 6 p.m. and includes a Q&A after the presentation. With the exception of the first program on Wednesday, March 15, all programs will be held on the third Thursday of the month. Admission is free, and no reservations or tickets are required this year.
The series website, TomTwomeySeries.org, provides detailed information about each speaker and topic. Full-length videos of the 2015 and 2016 programs can also be found on the website. Programs are subject to change and substitutions.
