We're delighted to welcome back Jodi Picoult with her new, thought-provoking novel, Small Great Things. She returns on Friday, October 14, at 7 pm. Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse. During a routine checkup on a newborn, she's told she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, an African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene? Her hesitation results in being charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. With incredible empathy, intelligence, and candor, Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers. The program will be a conversation between Jodi Picoult and Dr. Damon Tweedy, author of Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor's Reflections on Race and Medicine.
