Caro’s Busy Weekend

Local book reading

   Robert A. Caro, besides being perhaps the country’s pre-eminent biographer, is one of the main cogs in the fund-raising machine that is the East Hampton Library’s Authors Night, which, as is detailed elsewhere on this very page, happens Saturday.
   But before then, he’ll warm up his speaking voice and writing hand with an appearance at Fridays at Five on the back lawn of the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton, reading from “The Passage of Power,” answering questions, and signing copies. The name of the series tells no lie: It starts tomorrow at 5 p.m. The cost is $15, and there’s plenty of red and white wine to quaff.
