Jodi Picoult and the Writing Life:More Than a Good Story
Join us for a heartfelt and lively on-stage conversation between New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult and New Hampshire Poet Laureate Alexandria Peary as they discuss Picoult's long career as a virtuoso of the human story. Often set in rural New Hampshire, Jodi Picoult's novels are an expanding archive of the controversies and dreams of 21st-century America. Hear about Picoult's writing and research process, her collaborations with other writers, including her daughter, what brings her joy, and what it's like to see the disparate reactions to her books, which have been both banned and adapted into popular films and an off-Broadway musical. Glance into the remarkable work habits of a prolific writer of 30 novels, who, when asked what she considered her greatest accomplishment as an author, said she had "literally worn the letters off two consecutive computer keyboards."
A public reception will begin at 5:00 pm with appetizers, refreshments, and a cash bar. The program starts at 6:00 pm sharp. Ticket purchasers will have the opportunity to submit a question for a possible live response from Jodi Picoult, New Hampshire's own novelist of the world.
