Conversation with John Grisham and Elin Hilderbrand
Wednesday, October 28 | 12:00 PM Eastern Time
Join us for a truly blockbuster event: America’s favorite storyteller, John Grisham, will discuss his new novel, A Time for Mercy, with New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand.
Jake Brigance is back! The hero of A Time to Kill, one of the most popular novels of our time, returns in a courtroom drama that showcases #1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham at the height of his storytelling powers. In what may be the most personal and accomplished legal thriller of John Grisham’s storied career, we deepen our acquaintance with the iconic Southern town of Clanton and the vivid cast of characters that so many readers know and cherish. The result is a richly rewarding novel that is both timely and timeless, full of wit, drama, and—most of all—heart. Bursting with all the courthouse scheming, small-town intrigue, and stunning plot twists that have become the hallmarks of the master of the legal thriller, A Time for Mercy is John Grisham’s most powerful courtroom drama yet.
John Grisham, New York Times bestselling author and master of the legal thriller, is the author of thirty novels, one work of nonfiction, a collection of stories, and six novels for young readers. There are currently over 300 million John Grisham books in print worldwide, which have been translated into 40 languages. When he’s not writing, Grisham devotes time to charitable causes, including most recently his Rebuild The Coast Fund, which raised 8.8 million dollars for Gulf Coast relief in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He also keeps up with his greatest passion: baseball.
Elin Hilderbrand spent her first summer on Nantucket Island in 1993 and has lived there year-round for 26 years. She’s the mother of three, the author of twenty-three novels, an enthusiastic at-home cook, and a six-year breast cancer survivor.
