Arkansas: The home of John Grisham

by The 100 Companies

Unless you live under a rock, you know of the award-winning author, John Grisham. What you may not know is that he was born in Arkansas.

Grisham originally set out to pursue baseball, but after an injury he transitioned to the asphalt business. Grisham made the decision to go to college after surviving a random crossfire while on the job.

He became an underwear salesman at a department store to fund his education until he went to law school. After graduating, he practiced law for a decade and was inspired to write his first novel after a case he represented.
