About the EventAuthors Night is a lavish fundraiser to benefit the East Hampton Library. All proceeds go directly to the Library. Beginning in 2005 with a handful of dinners and a few hundred attendees, it has grown to be the premier literary event of the Hamptons with over 160 authors and more than 1,000 people in attendance.
Authors Reception from 5 - 7:30pm
Enjoy fabulous hors d'oeuvres and wine. Meet your favorite authors, buy their books and have them inscribed. The most recent titles for each author will be available for purchase at the event. Every title — past and present — written by our guest authors can be inscribed at the event. Don’t forget to bring your books with you to have them inscribed! Cocktail party location to be announced.
Dinner Parties begin @ 8pm
