MSU’s Maroon Edition returns to John Grisham for 2018

Mississippi State’s common reading program returns to an alumnus — and one of the world’s best-selling authors — for the university’s 10th Maroon Edition program.

In a campus-wide message, MSU President Mark E. Keenum announced John Grisham’s “Calico Joe” as the 2018 selection.

“‘Calico Joe’ tells a timeless story that raises important questions about forgiveness, the complicated relationships between children and their parents, and baseball. I believe you will find your time well spent as this story unfolds,” Keenum wrote.

Grisham is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at Mississippi State’s Fall Convocation in August, the formal beginning of the new academic year. His novel, “The Painted House,” was the first-ever Maroon Edition selection when the program started in 2009.
