January 21, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

 

Join us for our next book discussion! We will discuss Small Great Things, a #1 New York Times Bestseller!

With richly layered characters and a gripping moral dilemma that will lead readers to question everything they know about privilege, power, and race, Small Great Things is the stunning new page-turner from Jodi Picoult.

 

 

 

What They’re Saying about the book:

“Jodi Picoult is never afraid to take on hot topics, and in Small Great Things, she tackles race and discrimination in a way that will grab hold of you and refuse to let you go. . . . This page-turner is perfect for book clubs.”—Popsugar

Small Great Things is the most important novel Jodi Picoult has ever written. . . . It will challenge her readers . . . [and] expand our cultural conversation about race and prejudice.”  —The Washington Post

The book can be purchased online on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble among other places.

 

Dena Marks, Associate Director at the Anti-Defamation League Southwest Regional office, will lead our discussion. In the book, Jodi Picoult explores racism and bigotry through an encounter between extremists and medical professionals. The ADL is familiar with extremists, the symbols, logos, tattoos, and above all, the attitudes they display. Dena will talk about extremists, how ADL monitors them, and what you can do to protect yourself and other from their hateful activities.

A light breakfast will be provided. To sign up, please contact Justin at 713-782-4162 or admin@hcrj.org.
