Author storytime featuring Jessica Childress for Juris Prudence

About Juris Prudence:

Juris “J.P.” Prudence always wondered if her parents named her Juris because they knew that she was destined to become a lawyer.  Her parents probably never expected that she would become a lawyer at just eleven years old and use her law degree to change history!
