Westport author Emily Liebert will discuss her latest novel, "When We Fall," on Wednesday evening, Sept. 3, at the Westport Library.

Her talk is at 7 p.m. in the library's large reading room and is free, but the library requested that those planning to attend register online at www.westportlibrary.com.

"When We Fall" is the story of two women in transition, and as the story unfolds, it becomes evident they are going in opposite directions.

Allison is a young widow with a 10-year-old son who moves back to her suburban New York hometown. There she is befriended by Charlotte, who seems to have the perfect life -- a devoted husband, beautiful daughter and financial security. But as Allison begins to heal, cracks appear in the facade of Charlotte's life -- which is anything but perfect.

A graduate of Smith College, Liebert is the author of the nonfiction "Facebook Fairytale" and the novel "You Knew Me When."
