Clarksville, TN – “The South is a strange place, one that can’t be fit inside a movie, a place that dares you to simplify it, like a prime number, like a bible story … like my father.”
Born in Memphis, TN and raised in Mississippi, Harrison Scott Key knows a thing or two about life in the South – and the unique people that call it home.
Much like the South, Key’s father was also one-of-a-kind. The author, comedian and university professor’s new book, titled “The World’s Largest Man: A Memoir” tells the story of a bookish boy, sharing a house with a father who often seemed at odds with the society his son embraced.

Tennessee Representative Joe Pitts
Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) Military Student Center is collecting school supplies for military affiliated students attending the university. Your support is needed to help them attain their educational goals, since the majority of military affiliated students are non-traditional students who already have financial obligations outside of their education.
“It is often a financial sacrifice for our soldiers and their families to return to college,” said Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville).

Clarksville, TN – Here’s an open secret that you should know. The Clarksville Writers’ Conference at Austin Peay State University is not for writers alone. Avid readers are allowed too.
If you are addicted to mysteries like I am, you are probably familiar with the work of Sharyn McCrumb. In my humble opinion, her novel, She Walks These Hills, is one of the top ten best books I’ve ever read. It’s just one of the long list of great novels she has written.
Sharyn McCrumb going to be in Clarksville at the Authors’ Dinner on Thursday night (June 4th) at the new stadium and you can hear her for a mere $50.00 fee (you get to eat too!) If you hurry, you might just get a seat at the table. (Go to google and search “Clarksville Writers’ Conference 2015″ and sign up immediately!) Who knows when you’ll ever have this chance again?

Austin Peay State University’s revamped career services connecting students and alumni with employers
Clarksville, TN – For years, the Austin Peay State University Career Services Office was seen as little more than a resume critiquing service.

The office’s small staff and operating budget didn’t leave it much room for anything else.
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s longstanding support of military veterans has led the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) to name the University a Veterans Education Transition Support (VETS) Campus.
