home near Huntington, Long Island.
Long Island is a place of major contradictions and extremes and I decided to try to capture this in my talk which is titled, "From Whitman to Madmen: How the Space Age Transformed Long Island's Environmental Transcendentalism and We Learned to Love the Bomb". The event will take place from 9-3 on Saturday and my presentation will be in the morning around 10. Here's a link to the museum site for more information in case you are interested.
