About Authors Night 2023

Saturday, August 12 from 5 – 7:30 pm

On Saturday, August 12, 2023, the East Hampton Library will present its 19th Annual Authors Night fundraiser. 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.

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: Tickets are $150 for the Authors Reception only, and begin at $400 for the dinners (includes entry to book signing reception). Tickets are available in late spring, online at authorsnight.org, at the Library (159 Main St., East Hampton, NY), and by phone at (631) 324-0222..

Location: Outdoors under a grand tent at Herrick Park in the middle of the Village of East Hampton.
