Lots of people in Huntington must have been happy it didn’t rain as originally predicted for August 6th, 2014, the day Former Secretary of State HILLARY CLINTON signed copies of her new memoir Hard Choices for 1,200 people at the Book Revue.

Huntington, New York, U.S. - August 6, 2014 - A police officer and police dog are leaving the Book Revue, a few hours before a book signing for H. Clinton's new memoir, Hard Choices, starts at the Book Revue in Huntington, Long Island. A large sign on the book store window says that the Clinton book signing that night is Sold Out.

Several hours before the 6-8pm Hard Choices book signing, I drove to Huntington with my daughter, who had a ticket and copy of the memoir, and she got on the line, already a few blocks away from the store’s entrance.

I began capturing news photos, including of KENNY MITCHELL of Garden City, who arrived 11:10pm the night before and was first on line; protestors; members of Super PAC Ready for Hillary; extensive security including county police, federal agents, and K9 officers.

When it was time to enter the store, Secret Service checked my Nikon D4 and lenses very thoroughly. Finally, the Book Revue’s co-owners, brothers Richard Klein and Robert Klein, introduced Hillary Clinton, and she began signing copies of her memoir.

Guantanamo Bay Courtroom Artist Janet Hamlin at Hofstra

From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)
December 27, 2013

After hearing an NPR interview (WNYC) with Janet Hamlin, the only courtroom sketch artist allowed to depict Guantanamo Bay military tribunals from 2006-2012, I was excited to learn Hamlin was coming to Hofstra to discuss her work and new book “Sketching Guantanamo.”

Hempstead, New York, U.S. 12th November, 2013. Janet Hamlin, a courtroom artist covering the military tribunals at Guantanamo Bay since 2006, shows her charcoal drawings and discusses her work at Hofstra University. Much of the time she was the only journalist providing a visual record of the events at the United States naval base in Cuba, and her new book "Sketching Guantanomo" is a collection of her images.

Seeing several of Hamlin’s original large sketches on brown paper and hearing the challenging – and, at times, surprising – restrictions placed on her Guantanamo work, were highlights of the artist’s visit, which ended with a book signing.
