Join beloved novelist and the bestselling author of twenty-five books, Jodi
Picoult, for an evening in conversation with Globe and Mail journalist,

negotiator attempting to resolve the crisis, to his fifteen-year-old
daughter visiting the clinic, to a seventeen-year-old woman in hospital
after attempting to self-terminate a pregnancy, A Spark of Light shares the
complex lives of ordinary people in spellbinding prose.
