1. Was there anything that made you think about Thurgood Marshall differently in terms of his role in American history based on what you've read in Devil in the Grove?
2. Reviewers have commented that Devil in the Grove has the narrative drive of a thriller. Did this book read or feel differently than other nonfiction books you've read in the past?
3. Four people were killed during this case, yet Marshall still saw it as a victory. Why do you think that was so?
4. Before reading the book, were you aware of the Ku Klux Klan's activities in Florida during the first half of the twentieth century? Do you believe that race relations evolved differently in Florida than in the rest of the South?
