New Dominion: Addison reads from 'A Walk Across the Sun'
John Grisham will introduce author Corban Addison ahead of a reading from his novel A Walk Across the Sun. A UVA grad, Addison has written a novel on the global trade in human beings. His research took him to India and Europe and into the corridors of power in Washington, D.C. In immersing himself in the world of modern-day slavery, he spent time with experts and activists in the field and went undercover into the brothels of Mumbai to meet trafficking victims firsthand. A book signing will follow.
“Since my first novel was released over 20 years ago, I have been presented with many opportunities to endorse the works of other authors hoping to find a publisher. I have always declined, until now. Corban Addison has written a novel that is beautiful in its story and also important in its message. A Walk Across the Sun deserves a wide audience. And I strongly suspect that Mr. Addison will be heard from again and again.” – John Grisham
