• Sag Harbor hosts its second annual weekend full of events honoring writer John Steinbeck this weekend, with lectures, celebrations and a dog walk around town. Mr. Steinbeck spent most of his later years in the South Fork’s whaling village, which served as the basis for his novel “The Winter of Our Discontent” and as the home base for his story “Travels With Charley,” in which he set off across the country on a journey with his standard poodle, Charley. More information on the weekend’s festivities is online here.
