We need your help.

Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

King's English hosts virtual conversation with John Grisham

If you were a regular attendee at author events hosted by The King's English, you've probably been going through a bit of withdrawal (along with withdrawal from many other kinds of gatherings). Tonight, the bookshop plays virtual host to one of the most successful novelists of the 20th century.

In a pre-recorded conversation, The King's English co-founder Betsy Burton will be chatting with John Grisham, celebrated author of legal thrillers-turned-movie hits like The Firm, The Pelican Brief  and The Client. The topic at hand is Grisham's new mystery novel Camino Winds, a sequel of sorts to his 2017 novel Camino Island, set at a fictional Florida resort community.

The chat will be posted tonight (May 19) at 6 p.m. via The King's English website and Facebook page.  After the event, a limited number of signed first-edition copies of Camino Winds will be available for purchase through The King's English website (no phone-in orders, please).  Join in for a virtual chance to connect with your local independent bookseller and with a literary icon.
