Join beloved novelist and the bestselling author of twenty-five books, Jodi Picoult, for an evening in conversation with Globe and Mail journalist, Marsha Lederman, about her latest release, A Spark of Light. This powerful, provocative new novel explores the results of a heart-stopping event, when a gunman opens fire on Mississippi’s sole remaining women’s reproductive health clinic. From the police hostage negotiator attempting to resolve the crisis, to his fifteen-year-old daughter visiting the clinic, to a seventeen-year-old woman in hospital after attempting to self-terminate a pregnancy, A Spark of Light shares the complex lives of ordinary people in spellbinding prose.

Hear from the remarkable author about this recent work, her inspiration and her career to date.
