WESTPORT, Conn. -- Author and former Westporter Cathleen Schine will talk about her newest novel, "They May Not Mean To, but They Do" at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Westport Library’s McManus Room.
She will be introduced by Sybil Steinberg, a Publisher's Weekly contributing editor.
Books will be available for purchase and signing at the program, which is free and offered in partnership with the Barnard Club of Connecticut.
A former Westporter, Schine is the author of "Fin & Lady," "The Three Weissmanns of Westport," "The New Yorkers" and "The Love Letter," among other novels.
She has contributed to The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The New York Times Magazine and The New York Times Book Review.
Her latest book is an intergenerational story about how people search for a place to belong as families change with age.
The character Joy Bergman is not slipping into old age with the quiet grace her children, Molly and Daniel, would prefer. She won't take their advice, and she won't take an antidepressant. Her marriage to their father, Aaron, has lasted through health and dementia, as well as some bad business decisions.
The Bergman clan always has stuck together, growing as it incorporated in-laws, ex-in-laws and same-sex spouses. But families don't just grow, they grow old.
