Daytime Book Club

Our Daytime Book Club usually meets on the last Wednesday of each month. At our next meeting, on Wednesday, January 30th at 11:30 am, we'll discuss Jodi Picoult's Small Great Things. A white couple doesn't want Ruth, an African American delivery nurse, 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. She hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Her trial is complicated when her lawyer advises her that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy.*
