It’s not really fair, is it, to single out one writer as the highlight of a reading among putative equals, based solely on the whim of one faceless person at a keyboard. So anyway, Andre Dubus III will headline a reading from “Pushcart Prize XXXIX: Best of the Small Presses,” which is out this week. The reading happens on Friday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. — a bit of advance notice, this, for your scheduling convenience. The place? The Strand bookstore on Broadway at East 12th Street in Manhattan.
Bring your appetites because the East Hampton Rotary Club and East Hampton High School Interact Club have organized a spaghetti and meatball dinner at the Harbor Grill on Three Mile Harbor Road on Sunday. Seatings begin at 3:30 p.m. with a rough end time of about 7:30 p.m.
