Join the bookmobile and library outreach community for lunch with a noted author and an opportunity to socialize and network with outreach colleagues.

Josh Hanagarne, author of “The World’s Strongest Librarian,” will be the featured keynote speaker at the 2014 Bookmobile Saturday Author Luncheon, to be held from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 28 during ALA’s Annual Conference in Las Vegas.
Hanagarne fell in love with Fern from Charlotte's Web at the age of 6. Every day since, he has enjoyed reading more than eating, sleeping and breathing. Today the 6-foot-7-inch Hanagarne is an author, speaker, performing strongman and, despite having an extreme case of Tourette Syndrome, he works as a public librarian in Salt Lake City. His memoir, "The World's Strongest Librarian," is his first book.
Tickets to the lunch are $25 and must be purchased online by June 14; tickets will not be available at registration. Please refer to Ticket ALA2 when registering at; space is limited. The participation of Hanagarne is made possible by Gotham Books, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).

All ticket sales will end on June 21—tickets will NOT be available from the registration desk.
