Last night, I participated in an annual event in East Hampton, NY: Authors Night. Authors come from different locales, different genres, different walks of life to sit under the gigantic white tent on the grounds of the East Hampton Library and sign copies of their books. All proceeds benefit the library. Founded by Alec Baldwin and Barbara Goldsmith in 2005, Authors Night is considered "the literary event" of summers in the Hamptons. And it's fun!
And the books! There's something for every type of reader. From romances to spy novels to biographies to non-fiction books about training your dog to coffee table books on rooftop gardens, the variety is dizzying. All there under the tent.
