Event Details

Unshelved meets on the second Wednesday of each month, January through November, at 1:00 PM in the Library's Small Conference Room.  Books are selected 3-6 months in advance.  Anyone interested in the discussions is welcome to attend! 

In September, we will discuss Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.

Summary: 
A woman and her husband admitted to a hospital to have a baby requests that their nurse be reassigned -- they are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is black, to touch their baby. The hospital complies, but the baby later goes into cardiac distress when Ruth is on duty. She hesitates before rushing in to perform CPR. When her indecision ends in tragedy, Ruth finds herself on trial, represented by a white public defender who warns against bringing race into a courtroom. As the two come to develop a truer understanding of each other's lives, they begin to doubt the beliefs they each hold most dear.
