On the very date its published, we’re excited to welcome #1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham with his newest legal thriller, The Guardians! The suspense never rests in this pulse-pounding novel, moving at breakneck speed and delivering some of Grisham’s most inventive twists and turns yet. Joined in conversation by JBFC Board President and longtime New York Times critic Janet Maslin, they’ll discuss its story of wrongful imprisonment and the lawyers who fight for exoneration—regardless of how dangerous it might be—and how Grisham has remained America’s favorite storyteller for the last three decades.
After the Q&A, stick around for a screening of Sydney Pollack’s The Firm which boasts an all-star cast including Tom Cruise, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Gene Hackman, Holly Hunter, David Strathairn, and Ed Harris.
Please note: the Q&A will be conducted before the film, and a signed copy of the book, The Guardians, is included with the purchase of a ticket. Books courtesy of The Village Bookstore.
