  • Art Donovan, an artist and designer from Southampton, will discuss his book, “The Art of Steampunk,” now in its second edition, on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the East Hampton Library.

    The aesthetic of Steampunk, which first found expression in science fiction and fantasy literature, draws from the technology of the Victorian era. Steampunk artists use gears, goggles, gauges, brass tubing, leather, watch parts, and, in some cases, steam power to create mechanical objects ranging from jewelry to lamps to motorcycles that are fanciful but often functional.

    Spurred by a not very Long Island-like deep cold and unusual masses of snow — in short, a long winter indoors — your friendly neighborhood bookseller has started a diverting game, a “literary treasure hunt” called SmartyPants.

    Melvyn Aarons, 77, called police last week after Bank of America told him someone had attempted to open an account from a computer in Islip using his Social Security number.
