Josh Hanagarne is the author of a quite remarkable book: ”The World’s Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette’s, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family.” We don’t believe you will want to miss his appearance. Josh was a 20-year-old Mormon with a height of 6-7” and serving on a mission when his Tourette’s tics reached nightmarish levels. He underwent an incredible number of remedies that left his vocal cords paralyzed for three years before learning how to control the tics with the help of a former Air Force sergeant. Today Josh is a Salt Lake City Librarian and a weightlifter who is happily married and whose story will absolutely amaze you! His courage, his pride and his humor are impressive, and his book is almost impossible to put down. We’ll have copies for sale and signing, of course.
