For one night only, The Jefferson hotel was ground zero for all the Hamptons action! BLOOMBERG Business week editor-in-chief Megan Murphy interviewed journalist and bestselling author Holly Peterson on her new book it Happens in the Hamptons.
Connie Milstein and co-hosts Carol Melton, Hilary Rosen, Heather Podesta, and Juleanna Glover, gathered the DC elite at the historic hotel. Guests included Rep. Debbie Dingell, Maureen Dowd, Sally Quinn, and Ms. Peterson’s first boss, Bill Knapp.
Ms. Peterson discussed the disparity between the glamorous island’s haves and have-nots. She also discussed finding harmony in such a polarized place, recounting her time learning to surf with locals and the unique culture of Southhampton.
Guests picked out Hamptons flip flops and buzzed about the announcement of an independent counsel right as the standing room only crowd.
