EAST HAMPTON - Literature lovers met and mingled with famous faces and acclaimed authors alike at the East Hampton Library's Authors Night benefit this weekend.

There was a bevy of books for sale, and a bunch of stars were on hand for the annual event. Music mogul Clive Davis signed copies of his memoir, which tells of his experiences working with the biggest names in the music business.

Gwenyth Paltrow was there to sign copies of her newest cookbook, and the actress was accompanied by her husband, Chris Martin, and their children.

The book-signing bash also brought out former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, model and 'Real Housewife' Kelly Bensimon, and Hamptons heavyweight Alec Baldwin.

Authors Night is expected to raise more than $200,000 for the East Hampton Library, a private, not-for-profit organization that serves the East Hampton community.
