A Reading Weekend Returns

Wed, 02/19/2020 - 12:30

The Baker House 1650 in East Hampton Village will give book lovers a chance to hobnob with six novelists as part of a weekend getaway package from Friday, Feb. 28, to March 1.

The Bedside Reading Authors Weekend includes two nights at the inn, breakfast each day, a gift bag, a set of books, and entry to five events. The starting price is $983.82 per room. Reservations must be made at least a day in advance.

The events include a cocktail party with Amy Impellizzeri, the author of the upcoming time-travel novel “I Know How This Ends,” at the Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton on Friday, Feb. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Jennifer Moorman, whose “The Baker’s Man” is a magical realism novel, will give a baking demonstration and read from her book at 10 a.m. on Feb. 29 at the White Fences Inn in Water Mill. She will be followed at noon by Laurie Gelman, whose latest humor novel is “You’ve Been Volunteered.” There will be a tasting of goods from Five North Chocolate afterward.

Coffee with Natalie Banks, the author of the thriller “Moments Between,” will be from 2:30 to 4 p.m. that day at 1770 House in East Hampton Village, and a cocktail party with Hank Phillippi Ryan, whose new thriller is “The Murder List,” will be from 5 to 7 at the Baker House.

A brunch with Kim Sakwa, now out with a time-travel romance, “The Pro­phecy,” will take place on March 1 from 10:30 to noon at the Maidstone, also in the village.

Tickets to the author events only are $150 and available on
