Adirondack Authors Night

Hoss’ Country Corner in Long Lake has an annual Adirondack Authors Night. Hoss and family throw a picnic for all the authors and their families at the big pavilion over looking Long Lake. The cool mountain breeze assures the hot dogs and hamburgers will be winter cold the minute they jump from the grill to your bun…no cold ketchup needed to help the process along. But you also need not worry that the mayo on the potato salad has been warming for too long. Great party! For dessert we each get a double-dip of ice cream from their stand back down on Main Street.

The event runs from 7 to 9. Several hundred people come through the tent and talk to the 70 or 80 authors who sign books for them and tell stories about their writing. People pile on more sweaters as the sun sets, but no one leaves. This year we drove back to Star Lake after the event ended. The clear night sky held the sun’s light until moon shadows began falling on the hillside trees.
