East Hampton Library’s 19th Annual Authors Night  

August 13, 2023:  Author’s Night, East Hampton Library’s annual celebration of books and 126 years of reading at their library, took place at Herrick Park on Saturday. The evening began at 5pm with the Author’s Book Signing Cocktail Party under a tent, where around 2,000 guests showed up to meet and mingle with some 100 authors, who were there to promote their books. Delicious hors d’oeuvres, wine, beverages, and desserts were available while guests circulated, purchased books and had them personally inscribed by the authors of their choice. Private dinner parties, each featuring one or more of the guest authors, followed the reception at 8 pm.
