Delve into the life and mind of one of America’s most popular and prolific contemporary writers, Jodi Picoult, as she discusses her latest work, Leaving Time. This new novel combines elements of a mystery thriller with a plot that could have been taken from the pages of National Geographic—featuring a heroine unraveling the suspicious disappearance of her mother, a prominent researcher who studied grief among elephants. In conversation with National Geographic Traveler contributing editor at large Don George, she’ll share some of the story behind the book, including her own trip to Botswana to learn more about the crisis facing Africa’s elephants.

Book signing to follow the event. Special book/ticket combo available.

Read an interview with Jodi Picoult in the New York Times and a review in the Washington Post.
