Grafton, author of the Kinsey Milhone alphabet mystery series, has a home in Louisville. The penultimate novel in the series, “Y is for Yesterday,” came out in August and currently sits at No. 11 on The New York Times bestseller list for hardcover fiction.

At the event, Grisham will talk about “The Rooster Bar” and he and Grafton will discuss writing.

The ticket price is $32 and includes one pre-signed copy of “The Rooster Bar.” The event’s Facebook page notes there will be no autograph signing at the event.

A portion of the proceeds for the 7 p.m. event will benefit the Friends of the Kentucky Theatre. The theater is currently closed for renovations, but is expected to re-open Oct. 27.
