The seventh annual Authors Night, a book signing and cocktail party on Saturday under a tent on the lawn of the East Hampton Library from 5 to 7:30 p.m., will benefit the library. The reception will be followed at 8 by more than 30 dinner parties in private houses, at each of which will be an author. These have all been sold out, however.
Soldier Ride the Hamptons will be dedicated on Saturday to Lance Cpl. Jordan C. Haerter and will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit that makes financial, medical, and emotional assistance available to United States soldiers wounded overseas.
Registration will get under way at 7:45 a.m. at the Principis’ Ocean View Farm on Montauk Highway in Amagansett. The dedication and blessing, given by the Rev. Steven E. Howarth of the Amagansett Presbyterian Church, will begin at 8:45, and the riders will set out at 9.
