Humorist Philip Gulley, often called "the voice of small-town American life," will speak, read from his works, and answer questions. His books will not be available for sale, but he'll be glad to sign any copies the audience brings.
Gulley is a Quaker pastor, writer, and speaker from Danville, Indiana. He has published 22 books including the Harmony series recounting life in the eccentric Quaker community of Harmony, Indiana and the best-selling Porch Talk essay series broadcast on public television. Gulley's current essays appear in every issue of Indianapolis Monthly and the Saturday Evening Post.
His memoir, I Love You, Miss Huddleston: And Other Inappropriate Longings of My Indiana Childhood, was a finalist for the Thurber Prize for American Humor.
Gulley’s latest fictional series continues the exploits of Sam Gardner, first introduced in the Harmony series. The new Hope series includes A Place Called Hope, A Lesson in Hope, and A Gathering in Hope. He has also co-written books on theology with James Mulholland.
