  • “Are these art?” asked more than one visitor to a recently vacated gallery space in Amagansett. No, they're Budnitz bicycles.
  • The last of the summer’s Poetry Marathon gatherings is Sunday, when at least seven poets will read from their work starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Marine Museum in Amagansett.
  • A moon-faced orb as regent for the evening, a goodbye to a beloved pair of worn-out sneakers, and a beached baby whale's salvation in new children's books.
  • A bumper sticker in the rear window of Santiago Campomar’s Toyota Tacoma pickup truck shows Bob Marley’s tousled, dreadlocked head and quotes from his “Redemption Song”: “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.”

  • Readings with a Halloween theme, and an editor talks about the publishing business.
