WESTPORT, Conn. -- Author Alix Christie will visit the Westport Library to discuss her new historical novel "Gutenberg’s Apprentice,” on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 2 p.m.

The story of invention, intrigue and betrayal is told through the lives of the three men who made printing possible—an ambitious young scribe, a merchant and inventor and entrepreneur Johann Gutenberg. Both mechanical challenges and the power of the Catholic church threaten the undertaking, which led, eventually, to the birth of today's publishing industry.

Books will be available for purchase and signing at the program, which is free and open to the public.

The Westport Library is located at 20 Jesup Road.
