The World's Largest Man: A Memoir

Book lovers: prepare thyselves for hilarity. Tonight, Harrison Scott Key will share his moving, metaphor-rich memoir about growing up in Mississippi with a larger-than-life father, a hunter, a fighter, a football coach. Harrison, with his love of books and excessive interest in hugging, couldn't have been less like Pop. Sly, heartfelt, and tirelessly hilarious, he shares how he came to view his father in a new light and realized for better and for worse how much like his old man he'd become. 


Harrison Scott Key is a contributing editor for the Oxford American and a professor of English at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia, where he lives with his wife and three children. His work has been featured in The Best American Travel Writing and numerous magazines.
