Small Great Things

Praised by the likes of The Washington Post and The New York Times, best-selling author Jodi Picoult’s Small Great Things is an enthralling courtroom drama that wrestles with the ideas of privilege, race and prejudice.

Ruth, an experienced African-American labour and delivery nurse, is banned from caring for a newborn baby by his white supremacist parents.  However, when the baby falls ill after a routine hospital procedure and Ruth is alone in the nursery, she is faced with a great moral dilemma.

Picoult’s novel challenges readers, urging them to consider both ethical and racial issues, and is reflective of the political climate in which it was written.
