The Bridgehampton Historical Society and the Peconic Land Trust will co-host the second annual Bridgehampton Barn Tour on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will include barns of all styles, ages, and uses in the Bridgehampton region and extending into areas of Water Mill and Sagaponack.
The barns chosen are good examples of construction trends and may also demonstrate efforts at restoration and adaptive reuse of the typical vernacular barn. There will be eight barns in all, some public and some private. The tour is self-guided.
Jong on E.L. James
BookHampton will host a provocative discussion with Erica Jong on Saturday at 8 p.m. at the East Hampton store. She will discuss the book “Fifty Shades of Grey” in a talk called “Is This What We’ve Come To?”
Ms. Jong’s 1973 “Fear of Flying” was one of the first popular erotic novels penned by a woman. She has continued to write in that genre, crafting some of the more graphic sexual descriptions in contemporary fiction.
