Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and more than 20 other novels, returns with a powerful and provocative new novel about ordinary lives that intersect during a heart-stopping crisis. A Spark of Light, opens on a warm fall morning in Mississippi as a gunman enters a women's health clinic and begins shooting. Each chapter of the novel spools backward an hour earlier in the day, tracking the lives of the women involved, the medical staff at the center, the shooter, and the hostage negotiator outside — and how they are all interconnected.
Told with her trademark fearlessness, Jodi delivers a powerful story that will ignite an important conversation.
You will be among the first to get Jodi’s new book, which releases on October 2nd. If you cannot attend one of the events, but would still like an autographed copy, you can pre-order here and leave a comment requesting a signed copy. (Please note that books are pre-signed and there will be no book personalization at the events.)
PPNNE is the region's largest reproductive and sexual health care provider, serving more than 43,000 people each year at 21 health centers across Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Thanks in part to their generous supporters, PPNNE provided more than $8 million worth of discounted and free health care last year.
Event to be held at the Norwich Congregational Church, just down the street from the bookstore, which is handicapped accessible.
