WHAT: The East Hampton Library’s 9th Annual Authors Night
WHEN & WHERE: Saturday, August 10, 2013
5:00 – 7:00 pm: Authors Reception Cocktail Party
Location Note: Gardiner Farm, 36 James Lane, East Hampton Village

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 with over 125 authors and more than 1,000 people in attendance.
The evening begins under the tent 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 some of the authors discuss their most recent book at dinner parties held in private homes throughout the Hamptons. 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 range in price from $100 for the Authors Reception Cocktail Party only, to up to $2,500 for some of the dinner parties (includes entry to the Authors Reception Cocktail Party). Ticket sales usually open near the end of May.
