We are delighted to welcome international bestseller Jodi Picoult for the launch of a stunning new work of fiction! With over twenty novels to her name Picoult has claimed the top-spot on the New York Times bestseller list over and over again and her fiction’s poignancy and passion have also made a splash on the big screen with box-office hits like My Sister’s Keeper.
As the author of immensely evocative novels, Picoult continuously addresses socially contentious topics in a stunningly intimate manner; her newest release, Small Great Things, is no exception.
Small Great Things explores the challenges and moral dilemmas faced by Ruth, an African American nurse, forbidden from interacting with the baby of a white supremacist family. Picoult‘s exploration of racial prejudices in the United States comes to a dramatic head when the newborn baby goes into cardiac arrest, and only Ruth is there to help. Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us.
We are thrilled to invite you to celebrate a sensational author and a novel that is deeply emotional, honest, and gripping until the very last page.
