On Saturday, August 10, 2024, at 5 p.m. the East Hampton Library will present its 20th Annual Authors Night fundraiser. Authors Night features 100 authors across all genres. The event 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.

“As we mark the 20th anniversary of Authors Night, we’re thrilled to present the event once again in the heart of East Hampton Village,” said Dennis Fabiszak, East Hampton library director. “The funds raised at Authors Night enable the East Hampton Library to provide our diverse community with essential programming and services throughout the year — all free of charge.”

Authors Night will be held under a grand tent on the Herrick Park field at 67 Newtown Lane in East Hampton Village. The evening begins at 5 p.m. with the Authors Reception under a grand tent, where guests enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres and wine, meet and mingle with the authors, buy their books, and have them personally signed. At 8 p.m., directly following the Authors Reception, guests dine at dinner parties at private area homes in honor of one or more of the guest authors.

Tickets are $150 for the Authors Reception only and begin at $500 for the dinners (includes entry to book signing reception). Tickets will go on sale in late spring, online at authorsnight.org at the library at 159 Main Street, East Hampton, and by phone at 631-324-0222.

Proceeds from this special event benefit the East Hampton Library, a not-for-profit organization providing free library services to the East Hampton community since 1897.
