Kay Tobler Liss (The Last Resort: A Novel) Author Talk and Q&A at Bank Square Books

January 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Bank Square Books presents an author talk and Q&A with Kay Tobler Liss for the new book, The Last Resort: A Novel.

About the Book
A Manhattan corporate attorney, with career and marriage in turmoil, drives desperately away from all he knows to an out-of-season resort on Long Island. As he struggles to put his life back together, he meets a surfer, a fisherman, and a Native American woman fighting to preserve ancestral land threatened with development, a fight that eventually endangers her life. The tension between past and present comes alive as he finds new meaning in life through the natural world and social justice for a long-oppressed race of people. The novel takes place on the eastern end of Long Island, the ancestral home of the Montauks, a Native American tribe. Historical characters come to life in a battle to preserve their land.
