Westport Public Library will host an estate planner during its new Take-a-Break get-together at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19, in the library's McManus Room, 20 Jesup Road.

Deborah Jacobs will discuss her new book, "Estate Planning Smarts," which provides guidance on estate planning for consumers, with a special emphasis on its effects for women.

A graduate of Barnard College and Columbia's Law School and Graduate School of Journalism, Jacobs is a senior editor at Forbes.

An award-winning journalist, she has contributed to many publications, including The New York Times, Bloomberg Wealth Manager, and Business Week.

She also wrote the book "Small Business Legal Smarts."

Books will be available for purchase and signing after Jacobs' talk. A portion of the proceeds benefit the library.

Attendance is free and open to the public. For information, visit www.westportlibrary.org or call 203-291-4800.
