It’s always fun to stumble across a literary landmark, and over a weekend trip to Memphis, I was excited to see a plaque paying tribute to John Grisham and The Firm. In the book, Mitchell McDeere takes a job with a Memphis-based tax firm.

Speaking of Grisham, there’s been a bit of news lately surrounding the king of legal thrillers. On May 25, Penguin will publish his first foray into children’s books: Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer. Theodore Boone is a 13-year-old amateur attorney “who knows more about the law than most lawyers do”—and gets wrapped up in a high-profile murder trial. James Patterson’s had success as a teen author; can Grisham do the same?
