For centuries lighthouses have thrilled and fascinated people with their sense of mystery, sea lore and romance.
Author Eric Jay Dolin writes about these beacons of light, including some on Long Island, in his new book, “Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse.”
He comes to the North Fork this weekend to discuss America’s lighthouses and sign copies of his book.

The first few weeks of autumn may have some people reaching for a sweater or rake, but here on the North Fork we make autumn-inspired libations.
Almost 2,500 oysters were consumed this past weekend at the Shelter Island Historical Society’s third annual Oyster Festival. About 250 guests filled up Haven’s Barn on Saturday night to enjoy live music, a raffle, wine and food.
“It’s just a lot of fun,” Nanette Lawrenson, the executive director of the historical society said.

Author and historian Kerriann Flanagan Brosky finds that, today, more people believe in ghosts than not.
“We are all at different stages in our journey and if it’s not your time to believe, it’s not your time,” she said.
A rather succinct answer for nonbelievers, but Flanagan Brosky is too busy investigating paranormal behavior and writing books about it to worry about skeptics.
