Author John Grisham dropped by the National Press Club Thursday to receive the first-ever Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction, awarded for his most recent novel, “The Confession.” The prize, co-sponsored by the University of Alabama Law School and the ABA Journal, honors works of fiction that portray lawyers in a moral, courageous, and non-snarky light.
