Jodi Picoult, the author we all know and love is coming to Huntington HS.

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.
