Once a Classic
Books have the ability to take you on journeys you never dreamed of, see places you never thought possible and experience emotions you never knew you had. Literature can have the most profound effect on your life, and it is all thanks to an author’s talent and imagination. Hamptons celebrates the power of the pen as a sponsor of the seventh annual Authors Night, a lavish fundraiser benefiting the East Hampton Library.
Guests at the literary affair, a Hamptons institution, enjoy exquisite hors d’oeuvres, wine and the opportunity to mingle with more than 160 authors in attendance. Join us in honoring authors such as Robert Klein, Christina Haag and Danyelle Freeman as well as Jill Martin and Dana Ravich with the launch of their new book I Have Nothing to Wear!. We also commend accomplished equestrienne and cover star Georgina Bloomberg for her new book The A Circuit, a novel about elite young adults in the world of competitive horseback riding.
In addition to Bloomberg’s recent foray into the literary world, her experience with the horse show circuit makes her even more relevant this issue. This week we feature the 36th annual Hampton Classic Horse Show, one of the East End’s most treasured equestrian events. As the signature end-of-summer tradition, the Hampton Classic offers the opportunity to reflect on the great friends we have here and on what a fabulous place the Hamptons is.
I hope this issue brings you all the happiness that comes along with these Hamptons traditions. See you in town!
