The undisputed master of the legal thriller, John Grisham, is coming to Charlotte on his first book tour in twenty-five years. Grisham will be at Park Road Books in the Park Road Shopping Center (4139 Park Road) on Wednesday, June 14th from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM to sign copies and host a discussion of his 30th book, Camino Island, which will be released on June 6th.
Grisham's new novel does not center on a law office or courtroom. This mystery is set in Florida where a struggling writer is asked to tracked down some valuable books and manuscripts that were stolen from the library of Princeton University in New Jersey. Camino Island sounds like a perfect beach book for this summer.
If you can't make it to see John Grisham at Park Road Books, you might be able to catch him at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh on June 13th, Malaprop's Bookstore in Asheville on June 15th, or Scuppernong Books in Greensboro on June 27th.
