We have always enjoyed the uniqueness of John Grisham...Southern writer, family man, always mindful of children. His heart for kids and their opportunity to learn and love the game of baseball is well known.

We have children from Schuyler, nearby to his home, who have been blessed by his largesse and kindness.

Writing children's books are yet another mark of an unusual man.

Hey Theo,
Good luck, sleuthing is lots of fun, when you're 13 years old, may you never grow up.
