O’Brien to sign books at Tatnuck June 23

meredithobrienfeb201#218736 (2)Westborough – Author Meredith O”Brien will be at Tatnuck Bookseller Sunday, June 23 from 1 to 3 p.m. ?to sign copies of her new book, “Mortified: A Novel about Oversharing.”

In “Mortified,” readers follow Maggie Kelly, who attempted to work through her resentment about feeling as though she was being held captive by motherhood and matrimony, by chronicling her exploits in a blog. When her blogging identity was eventually revealed, her husband learned that she had ?been writing about him, often in unflattering ways. The raw blogging candidness that made her a hit on the internet ultimately caused her husband heartbreak and humiliation. “Mortified” compares the relatively recent phenomenon of having private observations publicized on the internet to the various mortifications other characters experienced in the past, none of which were made as wildly public as Maggie's complaints.

Tatnuck Bookseller is located at the Westborough Shopping Center, Route 9 and Lyman Street.
