Associated Press, January 13, 2012: Jodi Picoult will be visiting Connecticut this weekend as the keynote speaker at UNH's winter commencement. Picoult has written 18 novels, including "My Sister's Keeper," which became a 2009 movie starring Cameron Diaz and Alec Baldwin. One of her books also has a unique tie to UNH: The central character in "House Rules," a 2010 book, idolizes UNH professor and forensic scientist Henry C. Lee. Picoult will also receive an honorary doctorate degree at Saturday's events, where she will speak to about 450 graduating students.
