An Evening with Scott Turow
Few American voices are as thoughtful, fair-minded, and intelligent as Scott Turow's. Described by Roy Blount, Jr. as "the thinking man's John Grisham," Mr. Turow is as eloquent in a taut psychological thriller as in a treatise on the death penalty.
Scott Turow is a writer and attorney. He is the author of nine best-selling works of fiction, including his first novel, Presumed Innocent (1987) and the sequel, Innocent, published by Grand Central Publishing in May, 2010. He has also written two non-fiction books about his experiences in the law. Mr. Turow has been a partner in the Chicago office of SNR Denton, an international law firm, since 1986, concentrating on white collar criminal defense, while also devoting a substantial part of his time to pro bono matters. He has served on a number of public bodies, including the Illinois Commission on Capital Punishment to recommend reforms to Illinois' death penalty system, and was the first Chair of Illinois' Executive Ethics Commission which was created in 2004 to regulate executive branch employees in the Illinois State government. He is also President of the Authors Guild, the nation's largest membership organization of professional writers, and is currently a Trustee of Amherst College.
