The World's Strongest Librarian

288 pages; Gotham
Josh Hanagarne is a self-declared bookworm. His first crush was Fern from Charlotte's Web; he read anything he could get his hands on as a kid (including the Sweet Valley High series) and even went on to become every book nerd's hero—a librarian. But at 6'7" and 260 pounds, the weight-lifting, agnostic Mormon with Tourette's syndrome is anything but your typical bookophile. Despite the many different complications of his life—or maybe because of them—he creates a poignant, funny tale about family, faith and how literature can make even an outsider feel like he belongs.
