East Hampton Library's Authors Night — Signing and Benefit Dinner

About the Event

You’re in for a wonderful surprise when you join the party at a lovely Hamptons home. You get to choose your party.

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, it has grown to be the premier literary event of the Hamptons with 100 authors and more than 2,500 people in attendance.

Enjoy fabulous hors d’oeuvres and wine under the tent. Meet your favorite authors, buy their books and have them inscribed. The most recent titles for each author will be available for purchase at the event.
