Ordinary Lives & a Heart-Stopping Crisis, a Fiction Book Talk & Signing
Jodi Picoult is the bestselling author of many beloved novels including My Sister's Keeper, Nineteen Minutes, and Small Great Things. She will present A Spark of Light ($17.00 Ballantine Books), a novel about ordinary lives that intersect during a heart-stopping crisis. The warm fall day starts like any other at the Center—a women’s reproductive health services clinic. Then, a desperate and distraught gunman bursts in and opens fire, taking all inside hostage. Told in a daring and enthralling narrative structure that counts backward through the hours of the standoff, this is a story that traces its way back to what brought each of these very different individuals to the same place on this fateful day.
Picoult will be in conversation with Eleanor Brown, the local author of The Light of Paris and The Weird Sisters. This event is in partnership with the Douglas County Libraries. Ticket includes a seat at the author's presentation, dessert bites, a pre-signed paperback copy of A Spark of Light, and a place in the photo line.
