Spring Break in Nashville con't
On Sunday, March 20th Jodi Picoult appeared at the Langford Auditorium in Vanderbilt University. It was a free and open to the public book signing. And I was there!
Before entering the Auditorium, the University bookstore had set-up an area where copies of Ms. Picoult's new release, Sing Me Home was available for purchase, along with all her previous titles. I purchased Sing Me Home and Nineteen Minutes.
We had been informed that Ms. Picoult would sign only two books per person. One personalized copy of Sing Me Home and sign one copy of any other of her titles. Once LS and I had made our purchases we found ourselves seats.
Jodi Picoult opened by reading an excerpt from her new novel. Then she explained while researching and writing the book that explores Gay Rights, her 17 year old son wrote an essay on being gay for a college application.
A portion of the proceeds from book sales at this event were donated to The Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center for Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences. The Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center specializes in ear, nose, and throat diseases, and communication disorders such as hearing, speech, language, and voice problems. Picoult has a vested in this facility. Her younger son has been treated here.
