AUTHORS NIGHT in East Hampton, NY
Author Rich DiSilvio with Hollywood icon Lee Grant. "It was an honor meeting Lee, she's been one of those silver screen stars that I recall from childhood and through the years, who made me feel as if I always knew her personally---and now I do. A real treat!" - RD
Exchanging books with Allison Pataki - Fellow Historical Fiction Author and daughter of former NY Governor George Pataki. "It was a special treat to meet Allison, who is a very sweet and intelligent woman. It was electrifying to discuss and share our love of history, and I was further elated when I spoke to her father, who said he intends to read A Blazing Gilded Age as well. Meanwhile, Allison's unique novel, The Traitor's Wife, brings to light Peggy Arnold, Benedict Arnold's scheming wife, whose loyalty to the British Crown could have altered history if she succeeded. It's a book not to be missed!" - RD
Celebrity/Authors Dick Cavett and Giada De Laurentiis. "Older and newer stardom abounded at the event, and Dick's & Giada's stellar careers are mirrored by their stellar personalities. Although not getting a chance to speak with Giada, since her table was inundated with fans, I did capture her charisma in action. Meanwhile, Dick Cavett is a fascinating man, his talents exceeding being a jovial and erudite talk show host, being a writer for Johnny Carson and Jerry Lewis, as well as a comedian with a good sense of humor, even when leveled at himself. It was a pleasure meeting the man who interviewed mega personalities as disparate as John Lennon and Richard Nixon!" - RD

It depicts TR the hunter, grabbing a rhino by the horn, while the heads of a bull and moose are mounted on the wall behind him, symbolic of his Bull-Moose Party.
