Grisham's Writing for a New Audience: Look out kids, the long arm of the law is coming. Well, the long arm of John Grisham's pen, anyway. Grisham--the author of numerous mega-bestselling legal thrillers--follows the trend of the past few years of adult trade authors expanding their reach into the children's book market. According to this morning's Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf, he's writing a new series for middle grade readers (and older fans, of course) which features a 13-year-old legal prodigy, Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer. The first book hits shelves on May 25. We'll keep you posted when the product page goes live.
