Legal Thriller Author Has His Distinctive Voice! Do Rotarians have one?

Author John Grisham, master of best-selling legal thrillers, told an estimated 5,630 newest graduates at Commencement at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that writing is like life and that it’s important for each person to find his or her voice in order to be heard. “Each of you has a distinctive voice.
