Faced with a dismal forecast for Saturday, the LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton has postponed a planned family day. Instead, it will be held on May 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The program for the day will include a visit from two children's book authors, Katharine Holabird and Hilary Knight. Ms. Holabird is best known as the creator of the "Angelina Ballerina" series. Mr. Knight's drawings brought the beloved character Eloise to life. Parents and grandparents may also recognize his illustrations from such titles as "Where's Wallace" and the "Mrs. Piggle Wiggle" series.

The May 27 family offerings will also include tours of the garden, a bird-watching walk, and art projects.
