Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Small great thingsTitle to be discussed: Small great things by Jodi Picoult.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, April 9, 2018.  Summary: Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse.  During her shift, she begins a routine checkup on a newborn, but the parents, who are white supremacists, don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery.  Ruth hesitates and, when tragedy strikes, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other's trust, and come to see that what they've been taught their whole lives about others and themselves might be wrong.
