Who would you be, if you hadn't turned out to be the person you are now?

Jodi Picoult is the author of twenty-four critically acclaimed novels, the last eight of which debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. The Book of Two Ways is her powerful and gripping new novel, combining her trademark compelling writing, exquisite characters, and fearless tackling of taboo issues.

Dawn is a death doula, and spends her life helping people make the final transition peacefully. But when the plane she's on plummets, she finds herself thinking not of the perfect life she has, but the life she was forced to abandon fifteen years ago - when she left behind a career in Egyptology, and a man she loved.

Against the odds, she survives, and the airline offers her a ticket to wherever she needs to get to – but the answer to that question suddenly seems uncertain.

Two possible futures. One impossible choice.

Join Jodi for this exclusive one-off event, live in conversation, as she confronts head-on the questions we rarely ask ourselves: What does a well-lived life look like? What do we leave behind when we go? And do we make our choices, or do our choices make us?
