IT HAPPENS IN THE HAMPTONS William Morrow/Harper Collins Holly Peterson
Sometimes the universe calls for a change of plans. Katie Doyle heeds this call and leaves the West Coast cross country to the Hamptons. This move is embracing the possibility of summer employment, new friends for her son and the opportunity to enjoy a love affair with an investor named George.
Upon arrival she witnesses the interplay between those of the 1 percent that co-exist with the locals of the island that have been there for generations. Somehow Southampton isn't what it appears to be on its surace which makes her nervous to mingle with her boyfriend's Elite Circle.
She realizes that regardless of the circle that one runs in, regardless of the socio-economic position, everyone is maneuvering and looking for ways to stay afloat in their community.
The summer continues with Katie learning more about the town and the shifting alliances that take place within the groups of people. From betrayals, sexual predators and a missing person - Katie learns that things are not what they seem. It's a meeting with Luke, a marine biologist and teacher where she has to confront the only truth that matters - what is it that you really want as opposed to simply existing in the Hamptons' playland that changes from one moment to the next.

VISUAL VINYL Verlag Kettler Heerlen Schunk
The world of records has always been one of constant change. Prior to the 1940s, they were sold in plain, uniform jackets. Post the war, musicians and record companies discovered that graphically designed record covers had the potential to boost sales! By the 1960s contemporary artists began to create record jackets that became an inspiration for others due to their radical, groundbreaking designs. Many of them have become symbols recognized not only by fans but by the wider public, symbols of an era where artistic freedom, experimentation, and innovation were encouraged.
This coffee table book is the first-ever comprehensive collection for vinyl lovers. These covers are taken from the extensive archive of Dutch designer Jan van Toorn, one of the most active collectors and leading experts in the field. Enthusiasts wll enjoy covers by famous pop artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
