New England College President’s Speaker Series Welcomes Author and Humorist Harrison Scott Key

New England College (NEC) is pleased to welcome author and humorist Harrison Scott Key, Wednesday, October 9 at 5:00pm as part of their President’s Speaker Series. The series brings entrepreneurs, artists, politicians, and other leaders from across industries to NEC’s Simon Center Great Room, 98 Bridge Street, Henniker, NH 03242. This event is free, open to the public, and handicap accessible.

Key’s humor and nonfiction have appeared in The Best American Travel Writing, Oxford American, Outside, The New York Times, Reader’s Digest, Image, and Southern Living among others.

He is also the author of two memoirs, including Congratulations, Who Are You Again? (Harper Perennial), a true story about his American Dream to do something creative and meaningful with his life and how that dream nearly obliterated every meaningful thing in his life. His first memoir, The World’s Largest Man, a true story about what it’s like to be related to insane people from Mississippi, including the surprise revelation on the last page that he is also insane and the book is a hallucination, won the Thurber Prize for American Humor.

He holds an MFA in creative nonfiction and a PhD in playwriting and works at Savannah College of Art and Design, where he has held appointments as chair of liberal arts, professor of English, professor of writing, and executive dean.
