Clare Messud, Jenny Offill to appear

On Thursday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m., Greenwich Library will present a lecture by best-selling authors Clare Messud and Jenny Offill.

During the talk, which is part of the the library’s AuthorsLive series, the two authors will discuss their latest novels. Both of their works eloquently explore a woman’s concept of self.

Ms. Messud, New York Times  best-selling author of The Emperor’s Children, is a celebrated fiction writer and journalist. Her new novel, The Woman Upstairs, is a tale of a woman awakened, transformed and betrayed by a desire for a world beyond her own.

Jenny Offill’s new novel, Dept. of Speculation, offers a glimpse into the intimacies of marriage, faith, and the universal shipwreck of emotion that unites us all. Her book is a suspenseful love story that delves deeply into what it means to be a woman.

Both books will be available for purchase and signing through Diane’s Books. This series is open to all at no charge, but seating in the Cole Auditorium is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. For more information, contact Diane’s Books at 203-869-1515.
