WHAT: The East Hampton Library’s 11th Annual Authors Night
WHEN & WHERE: Saturday, August 8, 2015
5:00 – 7:30 pm: Authors Reception Cocktail Party
Location: East Hampton village, to be announced
8:00 pm: Private Dinners at area homes
WHY: Authors 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, Authors Night has grown to be the premier literary event of the Hamptons and one of the nation’s leading literary celebrations, with over 100 authors and more than 2,000 people in attendance.
The evening begins with a lively cocktail reception, where guests enjoy fabulous hors d’oeuvres and wine while they meet the authors, buy their books and have them inscribed. The most recent titles for each author are available for purchase at the event.
From there, the evening continues as guest authors discuss their most recent books at dinner parties held in private homes throughout the East Hampton area. Guests purchase tickets to attend each dinner with the proceeds going to the library as a donation. Past years have seen up to 30 parties with more than 600 dinner guests.
Tickets are $100 for the book signing reception only, and begin at $300 for the dinners (includes entry to book signing cocktail reception). Tickets and complete event information are available online at the Authors Night website: authorsnight.org, at the Library (159 Main Street, East Hampton, NY), and by phone at (631) 324-0222.
