John Grisham

Thursday, October 24, 7:30 p.m.

Location: Eisemann Center for Performing Arts, Hill Performance Hall

In conversation with author and lawyer Talmage Boston

The Guardians, #1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham’s latest legal thriller, delivers pulse-pounding suspense coupled with some of his most inventive twists and turns yet. In a small Florida town, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was murdered as he worked late one night. With no clues, no witnesses, and no real suspects, the police wrongfully convict Quincy Miller, a young black man and former client. Lawyer-minister Cullen Post sets out to clear Miller’s name, ending up with more than he bargained for. A portion of ticket sales for this event will go to The Innocence Project, which aims to exonerate the wrongly convicted through DNA testing and reform the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.
