“Growing Up Southern—Then and Now”

“I prefer forgotten backroads and places where the pace crawls, where old mansions crumble, and orchards go untended,” says Tom Poland. Long a Columbia, S.C., resident, the Georgia native calls himself “a blue-collar historian” and writes about “memories, special places, and unforgettable characters” in the South he knows best, calling his area “Georgialina.”

Author of a dozen books and a thousand-plus articles and columns, journalist-professor Poland is a former editor of SC Wildlife. His widely distributed column appears regularly in the local Chronicle-Independent.

A lively, popular speaker, he is a recipient of the Order of the Palmetto.
