    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.
