Meet the Author

TOPICAL TUESDAY: Meet Becky Aikman, author of Saturday Night Widows: The Adventures of Six Friends Remaking Their Lives (Random House, 2013). When Becky Aikman had to remake her life, she gathered five other young widows like herself and took a forthright approach to finding happiness again. Important, insightful and often humorous, Aikman’s book offers a distinctive take on a largely under-covered but universal topic — starting over after losing someone close to you. An unsentimental, witty, and totally involving chronicle of moving on, Aikman’s book reads like a novel yet demonstrates important, little known principles about resilience in the face of tragedy. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Refreshments will be served. Sponsored by Friends of the Library. 7:30 p.m.
