Bill Haltom — father, husband, lawyer and award-winning writer — will sign copies of his book, “Some Assembly Required,” at 4 p.m. Dec. 3 at Paul Meek Library on the University of Tennessee at Martin campus.
On Christmas Eve, the three most terrifying words in the English language are “some assembly required.” In “Some Assembly Required,” Haltom will make the father in anyone’s life laugh this Christmas with his latest book.
Haltom shares a fatherly perspective on the challenges Daddy faces at Christmas time, including balancing the tree, stringing lights on the roof of the house and helping Santa put together toys that could only be assembled by graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Haltom, of Memphis, is the author of three books and has been a newspaper and magazine humor columnist for more than 20 years. He has served as chair of the editorial boards for four magazines, including the ABA Journal, the flagship publication of the American Bar Association. A popular speaker, Haltom has delivered commencement addresses and has been the featured speaker at conventions, banquets and leadership seminars.
