On October 10, Hamptons International Film Festival screened “Ron Delsener Presents,” a film directed by Jake Sumner that pulls back the curtain on Delsener’s 60-year career as a concert promoter and showman. In a certain era, the three words “Ron Delsener Presents” preceded the name of every major act playing New York, from The Beatles at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium to David Bowie at Carnegie Hall and Patti Smith at the Palladium. The film takes audiences on a tour through a half-century of live music and offers a portrait of a music business pioneer who, to this day, can’t stop hustling.

The Art of Books Opens at Southampton Arts Center

“There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written.” — Oscar Wilde Since the advent of Guttenberg’s printing press in 1454 when books began getting into the hands of the common man and women, words have had the ability to inspire and motivate the masses. But not everyone has been happy about it. It’s no secret that the written word is under attack around the world. The power words possess to challenge and enlighten society is terrifying to some. Books can change minds and introduce new ideas, which is why they ... by Annette Hinkle
