A Wainwright Homecoming
Laura Wainwright of the East Hampton Wainwrights will pay a visit to the East Hampton Library on Saturday, “Home Bird,” her book from a year ago, in hand. Subtitled “Four Seasons on Martha’s Vineyard,” it chronicles the life there of an observant and thoughtful nature-lover — a life not unlike many on the South Fork.
Representatives of the Long Island Power Authority will present details this evening in a meeting about a project to replace existing utility poles to allow for an upgraded electrical transmission line between East Hampton Village and Amagansett. The session will take place in an open-house format at the East Hampton Village Emergency Services Building on Cedar Street from 6 to 8 p.m. The public has been invited.
Following Monday's heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Health Department has advised swimmers against bathing at 64 beaches across the county, including Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. No other beaches in East Hampton Town are covered by the advisory, which has to do with bacteria levels related to stormwater runoff.
