A father is injured in a car accident and is on life-support. He is divorced and his son is estranged from him. He has remained close to his daughter. Who decides his fate? What are their motives for keeping him alive—or letting him go?

This is the medical and moral dilemma at the heart of Jodi Picoult’s gripping new novel, Lone Wolf.

When the siblings face-off in court, a family’s love and loyalties are tested. Picoult draws on her research about wolf packs. For wolves, nothing is more important than family. For the father who raised wolves and lived with them in the wild, his human family – his pack – must come together to decide his fate and find a way forward.

Picoult will be in conversation with Ron Charles, deputy editor and a weekly fiction critic for The Washington Post “Book World.” Book signing to follow.
