John Grisham in conversation with Clare Vanderpool October 31, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


  • October 31, 2017
  • 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Sarah Bagby will host John Grisham in conversation with Clare Vanderpool about Grisham’s newest book “The Rooster Bar.”

John Grisham is the author of thirty-one novels, one work of nonfiction, a collection of stories, and six novels for young readers. Of his writing, he has said, “I seriously doubt I would ever have written the first story had I not been a lawyer. I never dreamed of being a writer. I wrote only after witnessing a trial.”

Clare Vanderpool is the award-winning author of two novels: Moon Over Manifest and Navigating Early. Moon Over Manifest, her debut novel, was awarded by the American Library Association to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. She lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband and four children.

Sarah Bagby is the owner of Watermark Books & Cafe.
