    In addition to photographs, families captured their memories on 8 millimeter (mm) film beginning from the late-1930s into the 1980s (until videotape dominated the American consumer market). By the 1960s, it was superseded by Super 8mm film which allowed for a wider image to be captured. These films were generally captured at home around the holidays, at various celebrations, on vacation, or during any sort of leisure activity. There’s a good chance that your family or the library/historical organization you work at, also has films like this of your hometown. Now is the chance to pull them off the shelf and get them digitized.

    LILRC's Project Archivist Robert Anen will offer a program on how LILRC members can now submit digitization requests for both 8mm films and Super 8mm films. He will show you how we digitize films at LILRC, how to identify 8mm film formats when you encounter them in your collections, how to determine if you are looking at a film or a tape, how to properly store your films, what goes into inspecting a film before digitization, and show you the digitization process of a film in real time.

    Join LILRC as we welcome Jonathan Eig to discuss his 2024 Pulitzer Prize winning book, King: A Life. 

    “Vividly written and exhaustively researched, Jonathan Eig’s King: A Life is the first major biography in decades of the civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr.―and the first to include recently declassified FBI files. In this revelatory new portrait of the preacher and activist who shook the world, the bestselling biographer gives us an intimate view of the courageous and often emotionally troubled human being who demanded peaceful protest for his movement but was rarely at peace with himself. He casts fresh light on the King family’s origins as well as MLK’s complex relationships with his wife, father, and fellow activists. King reveals a minister wrestling with his own human frailties and dark moods, a citizen hunted by his own government, and a man determined to fight for justice even if it proved to be a fight to the death. As he follows MLK from the classroom to the pulpit to the streets of Birmingham, Selma, and Memphis, Eig dramatically re-creates the journey of a man who recast American race relations and became our only modern-day founding father―as well as the nation’s most mourned martyr.

    In this landmark biography, Eig gives us an MLK for our times: a deep thinker, a brilliant strategist, and a committed radical who led one of history’s greatest movements, and whose demands for racial and economic justice remain as urgent today as they were in his lifetime.”

    Long Island author Sarah Beth Durst will share her newest middle-grade novel, SPY RING (HarperCollins / Clarion Books). SPY RING is about two modern-day kids who discover the truth about real-life American Revolutionary War-era spy Anna Smith Strong (America's first female spy!) through a treasure-hunt adventure in their hometown of Setauket, New York. It weaves historical fact throughout a contemporary fictional adventure, and it encourages young readers to celebrate the history that surrounds them, while highlighting lesser-known heroes who lived right here on Long Island. In a starred review, Kirkus called SPY RING: "Compelling and fascinating; brings history to life."

    Bio:

    Sarah Beth Durst is the award-winning author of over twenty-five books for kids, teens, and adults, including Spark, The Lake House, and The Spellshop. She won an American Library Association Alex Award and a Mythopoeic Fantasy Award and has been a finalist for SFWA's Andre Norton Nebula Award three times. She is a graduate of Princeton University and lives in Stony Brook, New York, with her husband, her children, and her ill-mannered cat. Visit her at sarahbethdurst.com.

    Join award-winning author Thomas Maier when he discusses his upcoming novel, Montauk to Manhattan (Post Hill Press, July 9, 2024), which is both set on Long Island and drawn from our local history. Montauk to Manhattan is a rollicking murder mystery in which the protagonist's own historical novel about the 1880s theft of Montauk Native-American lands by a LIRR tycoon is being filmed as a miniseries. 

    Maier will also discuss how his own books have been adapted into TV shows in this new era of streaming television, including his experience with MAFIA SPIES, a brand-new series coming out July 16 on Paramount+, and how his previous book about Masters & Johnson became an Emmy-winning Showtime drama series starring Michael Sheen, Lizzy Caplan, Jeremy Strong and Allison Janney. Those real life TV experiences inform the plot of Montauk to Manhattan, which was inspired by Maier's 1998 Newsday investigation of the mistreatment of  the Montauk tribe. That same Newsday investigation has been cited by the East End tribes in their legal attempts at official recognition. The novel also deals with today's issues of the media, presidential politics, and #MeToo Hollywood. 

    “Yet another captivating work by Thomas Maier, who masterfully shares here his unique insider-lens on Hollywood, politics, crime, media and our often scandalous home base, Long Island.” —Claudia Copquin, Journalist and Founder of Long Island LitFest

    Thomas Maier is the author of eight books, a television producer, and longtime award-winning journalist for Newsday in New York. His books about US history have been featured twice on the "Today" show, twice on “Morning Joe”, the CBS Evening News, ABC's 20/20, NPR's "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross, MSNBC's "Hardball with Chris Matthews, Cspan “Booknotes”, and at both the FDR Library and JFK Presidential Library. In 2022, Maier won the Columbia Journalism School Alumni Award for career achievement.
