Wednesday: John Grisham interviews Gene Nichol in Chapel Hill

A reminder for fans of legal thrillers both real and fictional: Best-selling author John Grisham will be interviewing UNC Professor Gene Nichol Wednesday night the Orange County Literacy Council’s 12th annual Writers for Readers fundraiser.

The pair will be talking about Nichol’s new book, “The Faces of Poverty in North Carolina: Stories from Our Invisible Citizens.”

You can hear him talking about the book with Policy Watch here.

Regular Policy Watch readers will remember Nichol, a law professor at UNC, was director of the UNC Poverty Center until it was shuttered by the UNC Board of Governors after butting heads with the board and the N.C. General Assembly.

Nichol isn’t any less critical these days. It’s a safe assumption there will be some discussion of why on Wednesday evening.
