East Hampton Library Children's Fair Is Sunday

Thu, 08/10/2023 - 13:15
At a past year's children's fair, there was plenty of fun to be had.

Saturday is the East Hampton Library’s Author’s Night, but on Sunday, the kids get their turn with the library's annual Children’s Fair at Herrick Park.

From 2 to 5:30 p.m., there will be carnival rides and games, food, a book fair and author signings, a raffle, arts and crafts, and performances. Local high school student volunteers will be running the games, crafts, and food tables.

Some of the children's authors appearing include Kimmie Antoinette ("Seasons of New York City"), Linda Calabro and Sarada Marie ("Good Morning Clouds"), Nonnie Gerber ("My Mommy, the Octopus"), Katherine Holabird ("Angelina Ballerina"), Nina Ross ("Montauk Has a Very Hungry Shark!"), and P.J. Tierney ("Hamish the Hedgehog, the Kitchen Critter").

A complete list of authors can be found online at

Author's Night is a fund-raiser for the East Hampton Library, which is also seeking donations to help keep the children's event free for the community. The donation page can be found at

On the Wing: Like Reeds in the Breeze

Odds are, you’re not going to see an American bittern, despite its large size. Frankly, the American bittern doesn’t want to be seen; it chose invisibility as its superpower. Still, this is the best time of year to try; make the experience at least as much about the journey as the destination.

New Lyme Test Could Be a ‘Game-Changer’

With over 400 blood samples collected from Lyme-infected East Enders since 2014, Dr. George Dempsey of East Hampton Family Medicine is the largest contributor to the Bay Area Lyme Foundation Lyme Disease Biobank, and his samples have helped improve the test that can detect it. The new test could catch it even sooner.
