Podcast - John Grisham and Hampton Sides - The Rooster Bar


John Grisham is of course one of the most beloved writers of fiction in the world today, having sold close to 300 million books worldwide including The Firm, A Time To Kill, Camino Island, and A Painted House, as well as the Theodore Boone  series for younger readers. He spent much of his childhood in Southhaven, Mississippi just across the border from Memphis. He recently returned to town to sign copies of his latest novel for Burke's Books, a store which was one of his earliest supporters. His new novel is The Rooster Bar, a thriller about a trio of third-year law school students who take unusual steps to deal with their mountain of student debt which they built up at a shady for-profit program in Washington, DC. A little bit later, we'll be joined by Memphis-native and best-selling non-fiction author Hampton Sides who joined Mr. Grisham later in the day for a conversation at Christian Brothers University for an audience of 500 fans.

Hampton Sides who is a Memphis native and author of best-selling non-fiction books like Hellhound on His Trail and Blood and Thunder. There were some technically difficulties, so Mr. Sides microphone wasn't operating properly, but we salvaged what was overheard by Mr. Grisham's microphone.
