New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult returns with By Any Other Name, a sweeping tale of ambition, courage, and desire told in intertwining timelines rooted in primary historical sources.

Two women born centuries apart are determined to create, despite the prejudices they face. Melina Green has just written a new play inspired by the life of her Elizabethan ancestor, but fears that she’ll never get her work produced on stage due to lingering discrimination against women even in the 21st century. As she contemplates risking failure again, her best friend submits her play to a festival under a male pseudonym. Meanwhile, in 1581, Emilia Bassano, endowed with a sharp wit and a gift for storytelling, forms a plan to secretly bring a play of her own to the stage - by paying an actor named William Shakespeare to front her work.

Picoult is the author of 29 novels, including Wish You Were Here, A Spark of Light, and My Sister’s Keeper.

All books purchased as part of a ticket and book bundle will be pre-signed and include priority access to a post-event photo opportunity with Picoult. There will not be a post-event book signing.
