East Hampton Library’s Authors Night

August 10 @ 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

$100

One of the most popular and celebrity-studded events of the Hamptons’ summer calendar, Authors Night features 100 authors across all genres. The “Premier Literary Event of the Hamptons” has grown over its history to become one of the most successful celebrations of books and authors in America, and one of the largest library-author events of its kind in the country.

Featured authors include Alec Baldwin (Authors Night Founding Honorary Chair), Cristina Alger, Amanda Benchley, Douglas Brinkley, Candace Bushnell, Robert A. Caro, Rosanne Cash, Tom Clavin, Garrard Conley, Fiona Davis, Steven Gambrel, Mary Giuliani, Jane Green, Alice Harris, Kristy Woodson Harvey, Elizabeth Holtzman, David Itzkoff, Barbara Kavovit, Ingrid Fetell Lee, Bridget Moynahan, Kat Odell, Chris Pavone, Holly Peterson, Joanne Ramos, Dan Rizzie, Gretchen Rubin, Gianni Russo, Jill Santopolo, Dani Shapiro, Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer, Michael Shnayerson, Vicky Ward, Ali Wentworth, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Beatriz Williams, Jessica Yellin, and many more!

The evening begins at 5 pm with the Authors Reception under a grand tent, where guests enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres and wine and have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the authors, buy their books, and have them personally inscribed. At 8 pm, directly following the Authors Reception, guests dine at dinner parties at private homes in honor of one or more of the guest authors.

Tickets are $100 for the Authors Reception only, and begin at $300 for the dinners (includes entry to book signing reception).
