Westport Public Library will host a talk by author Becky Aikman on her memoir, "Saturday Night Widows: The Adventures of Six Friends Remaking Their Lives," on Wednesday, May 1, at noon in the library's McManus Room, 20 Jesup Road.

In the book, Aikman writes about forming a group with five women who lost their husbands after her husband died of cancer while she was in her 40s.

Books will be available for purchase and signing after the talk, which is free.

A graduate of the School of Journalism at Columbia University, Aikman is a former reporter for Newsday and writer and editor at Business Week.
