On Saturday, August 10, 2013, the East Hampton Library will present its 9th Annual Authors Night benefit event.

As a library card carrying enthusiast – I can attest this is a wonderful literary event.  OMG. Put down your smart phone.  Turn off reality TV.  Tune into really great books and great authors.  By the end of the evening you might even be using three syllable words and full sentences!  Come for the cocktail portion or better yet sign up for an intimate literary dinner with your favorite author.

The evening’s Founding Co-Chairs Alec Baldwin and Barbara Goldsmith will be joined by Honorary Co-Chairs Robert A. Caro, Nelson DeMille, A.M. Homes, Robert K. Massie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Joseph E. Stiglitz and more than 100 distinguished authors.
