Westborough – Award-winning author Tehila Lieberman will be at Tatnuck Bookseller Saturday, May 18 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., to sign copies of her new short story collection, “Venus in the Afternoon.”

In this collection, the author writes of a middle- aged window washer, mourning his wife and an estranged daughter, who begins to grow attached to a young woman he sees through the glass; a writer, against his better judgment, who pursues a new relationship with a “femme fatale” who years ago broke his heart; and the daughter of a Holocaust survivor who struggles with the delicate decision of whether to finally ask her aging mother how it was that she survived.

Originally from New York, Lieberman lived in Jerusalem before settling in Cambridge, where she consults as a writing coach for the Harvard Business School. She has won the Stanley Elkin Memorial Prize and the Rick Dimarinis Short Fiction Prize and been published in many literary journals, including Nimrod, the Colorado Review, Salamander and Cutthroat. Her non-fiction work has been published in Salon.com and in Travelers’ Tales Guides anthologies, including Best Women’s Travel Writing 2007.

The event is open to the public. Tatnuck Bookseller is located in the Westborough Shopping Center, Route 9 and Lyman Street.
