Author Geoff Gehman - Beyond The Kingdom of the Kid: Wainscott 1.0 and 2.5

Wainscott Chapel Wainscott Chapel

Continuing our series of free history talks held at Wainscott Chapel since 2022, Wainscott Heritage Project will have author and journalist Geoff Gehman to present a talk, Beyond The Kingdom of the Kid: Wainscott 1.0 and 2.5 on Saturday, June 22, at 10:00 am. Based on his published memoir, Geoff will share recollections of the exquisite, influential freedom of living on the South Fork in the late 1960s to early '70s, with access to gorgeous beaches, the Georgica Association, a celebrated antique-car museum, a fabled race-car track, a house seemingly designed by masons from outer space, and the spirit of Truman Capote. He will then bring us into present day and his ability to have a soul-satisfying second life in his favorite hamlet.

Geoff Gehman spent six years in Wainscott's Westwoods and 25 years as an arts/sports writer for The Morning Call in Allentown, PA. He is the author of five books, including the memoir TheKingdom of the Kid: Growing Up in the Long-Lost Hamptons. Twice a year he stays in a Wainscott Hollow Road house overlooking the ex-baseball field where he met his first best friend, the one-room school house his sister attended, and the cemetery where his dog Jake's namesake resides.
