#34 Author Jodi Picoult Interview

The Not Old - Better Show Interview series, Author Jodi Picoult at Smithsonian

As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art of Living series, our guest today on the Not Old Better Show is Jodi Picoult.  Jodi Picoult, the best-selling author of 26 novels, is one of the most popular fiction writers today, but that doesn’t mean her books are easy reads. Picoult has addressed some tough topics in her novels, including the death penalty, stem-cell research, and child abuse, among others.

She prepares for each book with extensive research, sometimes investigating medical, scientific, and ethical issues. Her newest novel,Small Great Things follows an African American nurse who clashes with the white supremacist parents of a critically ill newborn—a confrontation that moves from the delivery room into the courtroom.  (the title refers to MLK quote:  “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things that are great.” )

Jodi will be at the Baird Auditorium, Washington, DC, Oct. 26, and tickets, including Jodi’s new book, Small, Great, Things, are available at the Smithsonian Associates ticket web site: HERE.
