The World's Strongest Librarian : a memoir of Tourette's, faith, strength, and the power of family

by Joshua Hanagarne

An inspiring story of how a Mormon kid with Tourette's found salvation in books and weight-lifting. By the time he was twenty, the young Mormon had reached his towering adult height of 6'7' when-while serving on a mission for the Church of Latter Day Saints-his Tourette's tics escalated to nightmarish levels.Determined to conquer his affliction, Josh underwent everything from quack remedies to lethargy-inducing drug regimes to Botox injections that paralyzed his vocal cords and left him voiceless for three years. Undeterred, Josh persevered to marry and earn a degree in Library Science.

The Future of Writing Looks Good at the Barbara Bush Branch

This past Saturday the branch hosted I Want to Be a Writer. Now What? panel discussion led by authors from the Northwest Houston Romance Writers of America. Our authors spoke to a full room of aspiring writers who were armed with pads, pens and excellent questions. The topics ranged from fleshing out ideas, to seeking representation, to eBook publishing. We can’t thank NWHRWA enough for helping us to inform and inspire so many hopeful writers.
