Jodi Picoult, the author we all know and love is coming to Huntington HS. Here are the details:
Best-selling Author to Visit Huntington
Jodi Picoult is coming to the Huntington High School auditorium. The
best-selling author will speak about and sign copies of her new book,
"House Rules" on Friday, March 5 at 7 p.m. Tickets are required and a
crowd of more than 1,000 is expected to attend.
Ms. Picoult is from Long Island and has written many popular books on
social issues. "House Rules," which hits bookstores on March 2, is
about a teenager with Asperger's syndrome, who has an obsession for
forensic analysis and becomes suspected of a crime because people
misunderstand his behavior.
A member of her profession's elite circle, Ms. Picoult's work has
reached No. 1 on The New York Times' best-selling list. Her writing
has received rave reviews. Financial Times said "It's hard to
exaggerate how well Picoult writes." Stephen King, himself a
best-selling author said "Picoult writes with unassuming brilliance."
Entertainment Weekly said "Picoult is a rare writer who delivers book
after book, a winning combination of the literary and the commercial."
The visit to Huntington is being coordinated by Book Revue and
sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union in partnership with the
Organization of Music Parents of Huntington (OOMPAH) for the
district's arts-in-education committee.
Tickets to the event are available at Book Revue for $30.42, which
includes a copy of "House Rules." Those 18 years old and younger, or
those with special needs, can purchase tickets for $5 at Book Revue,
which is located at 313 New York Avenue in Huntington Village. The
$5 fee can be redeemed the night of the event for $5 off a copy of any
of Ms. Picoult's books, which will be available in the auditorium.
(Tickets may be ordered over the phone with a credit card.)
