An Evening with Tommy Tomlinson

January 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tommy Tomlinson is a household name in the Charlotte area due to his profoundly enjoyable podcast “Southbound,” which he records in partnership with WFAE, Charlotte’s NPR station. Between recording sessions, Tomlinson has written for publications including Esquire, ESPN the Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Forbes, Garden & Gun, and many others. He spent 23 years as a reporter and local columnist for the Charlotte Observer, where he was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize in commentary.

In the tradition of Roxane Gay’s Hunger and written with the same insight and mesmerizing tone that have catapulted “Southbound” to the top of many Southerners’ podcast playlists, Tommy Tomlinson’s memoir The Elephant in the Room is his searing, honest, and candid exploration of what it’s like to live as an overweigh man in a growing America.
