Khizr Khan, Father of Slain Muslim Soldier, to Release a Memoir

Nov 23, 2016

Khizr Khan, the father of a fallen Muslim soldier who clashed with Donald Trump during the election, will release a memoir next year, a book publisher said Wednesday.

Khan’s untitled memoir will be published in the fall of 2017, according to the Associated Press, which cited Random House’s announcement. Khizr Khan's wife, Ghazala Khan, contributed to the memoir.

Khan’s public feud with Trump became a focal point of the presidential campaign after Khan spoke out against Trump during an emotional speech at the Democratic National Convention, and Trump responded by attacking him and his wife. Khan’s son, Humayun Khan, was a captain in the U.S. Army who died serving in Iraq in 2004.
