Grisham, Reichs Speak At NC Literary Festival

Two crime writers are speaking at the North Carolina Literary Festival about how their careers as a lawyer and as a forensic anthropologist influence their stories.

John Grisham and Kathy Reichs will speak Thursday evening in Memorial Hall at the University of North Carolina. In addition, Grisham will speak to reporters earlier in the day.

Grisham is a former lawyer who's now a bestselling author of novels such as "A Time to Kill," "The Client" and "The Runaway Jury."

Reichs is a forensic anthropologist in Montreal, Quebec, and an anthropology professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Her fictional creation, Temperance Brennan, also is a forensic anthropologist in a series of books that began with "Deja Dead." The Fox television series, "Bones," is based on her books.
