The John Grisham Stop

John Grisham, the second oldest of five siblings, was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to Wanda Skidmore Grisham and John Grisham. His father worked as a construction worker and a cotton farmer, while his mother was a homemaker.[9] When Grisham was four years old, his family started traveling around the South, until they finally settled in Southaven inDeSoto County, Mississippi. As a child, Grisham wanted to be a baseball player.[8] Despite the fact that Grisham's parents lacked formal education, his mother encouraged her son to read and prepare for college.

He went to the Northwest Mississippi Community College in Senatobia, Mississippi and later attended Delta State University in Cleveland. Grisham drifted so much that he changed colleges three times before completing a degree.] He graduated from Mississippi State University in 1977, receiving a BS degree in accounting. He later enrolled in the University of Mississippi School of Law to become a tax lawyer, but his interest shifted to general civil litigation. He graduated in 1981 with a JD degree.
