Coming Soon: LIVE INTERVIEW with #1 NYT Bestseller Jodi Picoult

Are you a Jodi Picoult fan? Really, I'd be shocked if you didn't know many people who have read her books. Some of the most popular--out of nearly twenty published titles--are MY SISTER'S KEEPER (which was made into a movie), CHANGE OF HEART, HANDLE WITH CARE, and NINETEEN MINUTES (which, coincidentally, I'm reading now). 

Jodi's newest is SING YOU HOME (Atria Books, March 1, 2011), a novel which could very well prove to be her most controversial...

SING YOU HOME explores what it means to be gay in today’s world, and how reproductive science has outstripped the legal system. Are embryos people or property? What challenges do same-sex couples face when it comes to marriage and adoption? What happens when religion and sexual orientation – two issues that are supposed to be justice-blind – enter the courtroom? And most importantly, what constitutes a “traditional family” in today’s day and age?

Visit HERE for a full synopsis and details about Jodi's inspiration behind the book.

I've been asked to be a blog partner with Atria's Salon Series, who is hosting a live web chat with Jodi next Monday, March 7 at 7PM EST. This means that you can come here, to Something She Wrote, and watch the interview from my blog!  
 
So mark your calendar, set your alarm, wash your favorite pajamas, and get some popcorn ready for popping. Come back here, next Monday, for this LIVE special appearance with bestselling author, Jodi Picoult! See what she has to say about SING YOU HOME and more.
 

 
**Yeah, yeah. I'm supposed to be disconnected from the nets this week, but this is too cool an event... I had to plug back in!
**Many thanks to Goldberg McDuffie Communications for contacting me with this opportunity.
