BOOK INFO:

Small Great Things, described by the Washington Post as “the most important novel Jodi Picoult has ever written,” tells the story of an African-American delivery nurse named Ruth who is ordered by White Supremacists not to touch their newborn infant.  The resulting complications create a firestorm which Picoult navigates with empathy and intelligence.
