The John Grisham UNC-Chapel HIll Commencement speech given in 2010 outlines some of the challenges the prolific author has faced throughout his distinguished career. As a best-selling author, John Grisham is one of the few authors that enjoys the luxury of releasing a book and knowing it will be bought by an anticipating crowd. However, getting to this point as an author has taken time and failure.

As a premier example for aspiring authors, creative minds and law hopefuls, John Grisham addresses the next generation of the knowledge economy.
