Join us on October 10th, 2017 at 7:30 pm at Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, NY for a unique evening when Nelson DeMille talks about his new book, The Cuban Affair, with former U.S. Congressman Steve Israel!   

Nelson DeMille is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty novels, six of which were #1 New York Times bestsellers. His novels include The Cuban Affair, Radiant Angel, Plum Island, The Charm School, The Gold Coast, and The General’s Daughter, which was made into a major motion picture, starring John Travolta and Madeleine Stowe. He has written short stories, book reviews, and articles for magazines and newspapers. Nelson DeMille is a combat-decorated U.S. Army veteran, a member of Mensa, Poets & Writers, and the Authors Guild, and a member and past president of the Mystery Writers of America. He is also a member of the International Thriller Writers, who honored him as 2015 ThrillerMaster of the Year. He lives on Long Island with his family.

Former United States Congressman Steve Israel currently serves as Chairman of the Long Island University Global Institute and a University Writer-In-Residence. Partly based on current events and national news during his tenure in Congress, in 2014 Israel published a critically acclaimed satire of Washington, entitled “The Global War on Morris.” His second novel, “Big Guns,” is expected to be published in 2018 by Simon & Schuster.  Israel was a Member of Congress for sixteen years. President Bill Clinton called him “one of the most thoughtful Members of Congress.” He serves as a regular political commentator on CNN.  Israel graduated from George Washington University with a BA in Political Science. His home is in Oyster Bay, Long Island.

    My friends and I want to hear the authors but aren’t interested in workshops. How are the authors being scheduled? Is there a talk and then a workshop and then a talk, etc?

      Thanks for asking. The workshops are FREE with admission and optional. They are running at Noon, before LitFest begins at 1 pm. Our author reading schedule runs in two sessions, with a book signing break in between. Please take a look at the schedule of events, here. We look forward to seeing you and your friends! It’s going to be an amazing day!

    I wanted to come to the Long Island LitFest 2017 for a couple of reasons: 1 of them is that I am in the process of what I hope to be a book about my experience with life in the past 10 or so years. I’ve experienced extraordinary circumstances and I believe that I could be of use to people out there if they read my story period I dealt with most of my tragedies and my dealings by being sober and by believing in something other than nothing. And I wasn’t really too much of understanding of the readings but I was very much interested in the workshops. Unfortunately my financial situation is such that I don’t even have that money to put aside for this function today. What I would like to know is if they offer free workshops anywhere and what do I have to do to sign up for those? Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and I hope to get a reply from you soon period thank you so much Toni Ann lettenberger
