The Story behind the Pick
Around 20 years ago, John walked into Lemuria, introduced himself, and asked, “Do you want to help me work on my new book?” As easy of a guy to like as John Grisham is, it was a no-brainer for me to say, “Sure, let’s give it a go.”
As John was visiting Lemuria on Monday, signing his new thiller, The Confession, I’ve reflected on this friend’s kindness and willingness to support our bookstore. John is a book guy and he loves good books. He also has a passion for collecting literary first editions. Over the years, Lemuria has placed a few gems in his fine library.
The real fact is John Grisham’s enhancing support of Lemuria, more than any other author, has helped make Lemuria the bookstore that it is. Without his generosity, tough times would have forced change in our bookstore in ways we don’t want to think about. However, this author’s love and friendship have enabled us to maintain our efforts of desire to give our community the best bookstore we can.
I feel it is difficult to show thanks to John, perhaps our
booksellers being the best they can be shows our thanks to John in a way
he can appreciate. All of Lemuria says thank you very much, your
support is greatly appreciated. -John Evans
