Khizr Khan, the Pakistani American lawyer and Gold Star father whose fiery speech at the Democratic National Convention was a significant moment in the presidential campaign, will write a memoir about his life story and the death of his son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, in the Iraq war.
"I still remember so clearly first falling in love with the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, and what they promised," Khan said in a news release from Random House, which will publish the memoir. "In this book, I hope to share our experience coming and living here as a family."
Khan and his wife, Ghazala, who will contribute to the memoir, were born and raised in Pakistan and immigrated to the U.S. in 1980, becoming American citizens six years later.
