Adirondack Authors Night Celebrating 30 Years

Authors Night PR Photo 1On Tuesday August 12th Hoss’s Country Corner in Long Lake will be hosting the 30th Annual Authors Night from 7 to 9 pm, the largest book event in the Adirondacks.

This is an opportunity to meet and greet more than 60 Adirondack authors, musicians and storytellers under the big red tent located behind the store at 1142 Main Street. This event is free and open to everyone of all ages. Hoss’s Country Corner is an Adirondack landmark, a family operated business for over 40 years.

In addition to authors and storytellers, live entertainment will be provided by musicians Dan Berggren, Bill Smith, and George Ward. They will be performing traditional Adirondack music as they have for almost the entire 30-year run of Authors Night.

Lorrie Hosley has been instrumental in promoting Adirondack books, writers, storytellers and pulling them all together in one location for guests to meet and greet their favorites. This is a hallmark event for Hoss’s Country Corner.

Authors will be on-site showcasing their collections, and personally signing their work. Guests are encouraged to bring their own copies of their books to have them signed or personalized, browse new ones, and also engage in one-on-one discussions with their favorite authors. Visitors will discover new authors and find great new written treasures and music to add to their collections. Bring the whole family to what is hailed as a do-not-miss Adirondack summer tradition in the heart of the Adirondacks. Books available by these original Adirondack writers cover history, fiction, non-fiction, local lore, legends, mysteries, guides, maps, regional Adirondack activities, animals, children’s books, people, places and more.
