“I’ve been coming to the Hamptons my whole life. My paternal grandmother had a house in Quogue, as did my father, and my maternal grandparents had a house on Shelter Island.  So I spent many many summers at the beach in Quogue and also on the rocky beach right next to the South Ferry dock in Shelter Island,” shares Sag Harbor writer Kate Betts, author of MY PARIS DREAM: An Education in Style, Slang, and Seduction in the Great City on the Seine.  A captivating coming-of-age memoir with the alluring backdrop of Paris in the 1980s and early 90s, Betts’s chronicles the seductiveness of the city, the hopes and heartbreaks of a young woman abroad, and the fantasy world of French fashion to life.


Kate shares, “If KDHamptons readers are in the neighborhood, please stop by the Garnet Hill store in Bridgehampton to celebrate the publication of my paperback.  I will be signing books, shopping, and sipping Whispering Angel rosé.” The KDHamptons crew will definitely be there to toast our friend Kate on May 29th, from 2-4pm at the chic Garnet Hill store, 2424 Main Street, Bridgehampton.
