Novelist Jane Green will discuss her book "Another Piece of My Heart" at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at the Darien Community Association, 274 Middlesex Road, during the Book Group's "Meet the Author" program.

In "Another Piece of my Heart," Green dramatizes the challenges of stepparenting.

When Andi, 37, marries Ethan, she becomes stepmother to his two teenage daughters. When tensions escalate between Andi and one of the daughters, Emily, they threaten the marriage.

Born in London, Green worked as a journalist throughout her 20s, writing women's features for the Daily Express, the Daily Mail, Cosmopolitan and others.

At 27, she published her first book, "Straight Talking," which became a best- seller and launched her career as "the queen of chick lit."

She lives in Westport with her second husband, Ian Warburg, six children, two dogs and three cats.

She writes a daily blog and contributes to various publications, including the Huffington Post, the Sunday Times and Self.
