Marisa Silver, author of "Mary Coin," will be in conversation with Kate Manning, the author of "My Notorious Life," at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at Barrett Bookstore, Noroton Heights Shopping Center, 314 Heights Road, Darien.

Silver takes Dorothea Lange's well-known "Migrant Mother" photograph as the inspiration for a book that weaves together the story of three characters: Mary, the subject of the picture, struggling to keep her family alive during the Great Depression; Vera Dare, the photographer who has left her family in order to pursue her creative work; and Walker Dodge, a present-day professor of history who discovers a family mystery embedded in the work. The author's tale explores the complexity of family relationships.

Refreshments will be served.
