Kelly will be discussing her just-released book, “Lost Roses.” The native New Englander’s debut novel, the bestseller “Lilac Girls,” introduced the real-life heroine Caroline Ferriday. “Lost Roses,” set a generation earlier and also inspired by true events, features Caroline’s mother, Eliza, and follows three equally indomitable women from St. Petersburg, Russia to Paris, France under the shadow of World War I.

“From the turbulent streets of St. Petersburg to the avenues of Paris and the society of fallen Russian émigrés who live there, the lives of these women will intersect in profound ways, taking readers on a breathtaking ride through a momentous time in history,” the library says on its website.

There will be a 30- to 40-minute author talk, followed by Q&A, book sales and signing. Light hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Ave., Fairfield’s Southport section. Sunday, April 14, 4-6 p.m. Free. RSVP at 203-259-0346 ext. 115.
