Tom Hudson was born near Birmingham, Alabama, and raised in Acworth, a small mill town an hour north of Atlanta, Georgia. Tom grew up to be a nationally recognized lawyer, but his principal interest is writing. He has written several well-received books on legal topics, and has now turned his efforts toward producing this chronicle of life in the South in the '50s and '60s.
His stories are presented with a distinctly Southern voice and a wry sense of humor that mixes Lewis Grizzard with Brother Dave Gardner. In Tales From Acworth, you'll be transported to a simpler, quieter time, and you'll meet characters you'll remember ranging from Tom's offbeat parents to his North Cobb High School teachers.
If you grew up during the 50's and 60's, you'll revisit those years and will probably re-live some of the stories Tom tells. If you didn't grow up then, well, bless your heart.
Details for the 2014 conference will be made available in the near future.
