The big literary weekend in East Hampton may have come and gone last week, but on Saturday BookHampton will host another author meet-and-greet.
As part of its authors series, the independently-owned book store will host Christian Brechneff, a painter who wrote, "The Greek House," Saturday at 5 p.m.
BookHampton calls Brechneff's memoir "one of summer's most enchanting books."
The New York Times' Steven Kurutz said, "After reading The Greek House by the painter Christian Brechneff . . . I wanted to go to Snifnos, the rocky island in the Aegean Sea lovingly portrayed in his memoir."
Brechneff recounts his love affair with the then-undiscovered island, now a tourist attraction, especially for those with yachts. He first visited the island as a 21-year-old aspiring painter in 1972, and has returned throughout his career to paint landscapes.
Brechneff, who has a Master's in Fine Arts from the Royal College of Arts in London, has work in a collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
The author series at BookHampton is free to attend.
