Authors in Quogue

Andrew Botsford

Quogue Library’s annual Author Series program lineup will kick off on Sunday, July 26, at 5 p.m. with the first of four virtual conversations between notable authors of recently released books and columnist Andrew Botsford.

Each author will read excerpts and discuss their book and their lives in a Zoom meeting format.

“We are so happy to have Andrew Botsford moderate our Author Series. His warmth and curious-nature combined with his background as a journalist promise great conversation which will grant us access to each Author’s act of creation,” says the library’s director, Jenny Bloom.

Participation in the 2020 Quogue Library Author Series programs is free and available by registering for the program at The authors’ books are available for sale on the website and at the library’s temporary location at 4 Midland Street during curbside service hours.

All events are at 5 p.m and a portion of the proceeds will support the library through the generosity of BookHampton.

July 26: Chris Beha, “The Index of Self Destructive Acts.” Through baseball, finance, media, and religion, Beha traces the passing of the torch from the old establishment to the new meritocracy, exploring how each generation’s failure helped land us where we are today.

August 2: Amy Poeppel, “Musical Chairs.” The author of  “Limelight” and “Small Admissions” returns with a hilarious and heartfelt new novel about a perfectly imperfect summer of love, secrets, and second chances.

August 9: Fiona Davis, “Lions of Fifth Avenue.” In nationally bestselling author Fiona Davis’s latest historical novel, a series of book thefts roils the iconic New York Public Library, leaving two generations of strong-willed women to pick up the pieces.

August 16: Cara Wall, “The Dearly Beloved.” The book follows two couples through decades of love and friendship, jealousy and understanding, forgiveness and commitment. It is a poignant meditation on faith and reason, marriage and children, and the ways we find meaning in our lives.
