Harrison delivers a superb author event experience. He's a triple threat: smart, hilarious, poignant.

   — Joni Saxon-Giusti, The Book Lady (Savannah, Georgia)

See where Harrison will be next!

Harrison has recently learned to read and enjoys sharing this gift with those around him, as well as those at a distance, if they have good seating. He has spoken at bookstores, universities, conferences, and festivals around the U.S., including the Oxford Creative Nonfiction Conference, the Auburn Writers Conference, the Savannah Book Festival, and others. With a background in comedy and performance, Harrison is very comfortable speaking to audiences who are drunk and incapable of feeling human love. Also, happy, healthy audiences respond to Harrison's work, too, usually by crying themselves to sleep. Harrison is also available for school visits, writing workshops, and craft talks with creative writing students. Topics have included humor, memoir, voice, nonfiction, and story.

Visit the contact page and invite Harrison somewhere to do something wonderful.
