‘Fridays at Five’ Welcomes Ken Auletta

Ken Auletta

Ken Auletta is a heavyweight — a Literary Lion, according to the New York Public Library, and one of 20th Century’s top 100 business journalists.

He is also the next guest at “Fridays at Five” — an East End accolade in its own right — on August 3 at the Bridgehampton Library, where he will discuss his most recent book, “Frenemies: The Epic Disruption of the Ad Business (And Everything Else).”

He is the author of 11 other books, including five national bestsellers: “Three Blind Mice: How the TV Networks Lost Their Way;” “Greed And Glory On Wall Street: The Fall of The House of Lehman;” “The Highwaymen: Warriors of the Information Super Highway;” “World War 3.0: Microsoft and Its Enemies;” and “Googled, The End of the World As We Know It.” Since 1992, Auletta has also written “Annals of Communications” columns and profiles for The New Yorker.

Hampton Library gates, located at 2478 Main Street in Bridgehampton, open at 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $25, and beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be served. For more information, call (631) 537-0015 or visit hamptonlibrary.org.
