JODI PICOULT on Friday, October 24th at 7:00 p.m. at the Seattle Public Central Library (Free admission)


Co-presented with THE SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY. Making a welcome Seattle return is much-loved novelist Jodi Picoult, author of over twenty novels, many of them bestsellers. She visits the library this evening to read from and discuss her newest leavingnovel, Leaving Time (Ballantine). “Picoult’s novel explores grief, memory, and motherhood through the unlikely lens of elephant behavior. Jenna Metcalf was three years old when her mother, Alice, disappeared from the elephant sanctuary where she worked as a researcher. Ten years later, Jenna is ready to launch a search … Longtime fans of Picoult will recognize some of her stock characters … as well as her trademark twist ending … The pachyderms are as complex as the humans, making the journey poignant and memorable.” – Publishers Weekly. Free admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Seattle Public Central Library is at 1000 Fourth Avenue (between Madison & Spring). For more information on the program, please see
