An Audience with Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult is one of the highest selling authors writing today, with a massive fan base in the UK. This is the first time in two years that her fans will have the opportunity to hear her talk live about her latest and most important book yet.

She is the UK’s top-selling author of women’s fiction with over 6 million copies sold since October 2004. Eleven of her previous titles have been Number One best sellers in the UK. Her last eight novels have debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list. It is estimated that there are 40 million books by Jodi Picoult in print in 35 countries.

Her latest book, Small Great Things, tells the story of Ruth who, raised the daughter of a black maid in a privileged white household, is no stranger to prejudice. Now, as a hospital nurse, she thinks she is a world away from the inequality that defined her mother’s life. But the patients in her care have not all moved on so far.

Never afraid to confront the moral dilemmas of our times in the most human terms, Small Great Things is Jodi Picoult writing at her thought-provoking, life affirming best. A powerful look at the judgments we make, the difference between us -and the humanity that bind us together.
