|‘Books on the Beach’ Welcomes Three Area Authors|
The Rhode Island Chapter of Hadassah celebrated
Hadassah’s 101st birthday on Tuesday, August 13, with its Third Annual Books on
the Beach Author Luncheon. The event, which was held at the Atlantic Beach
Club, in Newport, featured book talks by three distinguished local authors.

The Providence-based husband-and-wife team, Hester
Kaplan and Michael Stein, M.D., presented a unique program. Each author selected
and read passages from the other’s book and discussed his or her choices with
the audience. What it is like to have two authors, both recipients of many
literary awards, living in the same house? Kaplan and Stein, who edit one
another’s work, have learned to be brutally honest without being hurtful. Kaplan’s
newest novel, The Tell, is a story of
marriage, relationships, compulsion and culture. Stein’s The Rape of the Muse is a novel based on a true artwork rivalry and
Boston-based Dale Stanten wrote a memoir of her
childhood, “The Hooker’s Daughter – A Boston Family’s Saga.” It has been
described as a study in human relations and emotions.
