Blogger/Journo meetup tomorrow w/ John Grooms

Posted on 16 Jan 2010 by Justin Ruckman


when: tomorrow, Jan 17, 4-6pm
where: Amelie’s

Our guest at tomorrow’s blogger/journo (#FoJ) meetup is Creative Loafing columnist and author, John Grooms.

From his bio on Main Street Rag:

“John Grooms is a multiple award-winning writer and editor, as well as teacher, public speaker, event organizer, music lover, rock history fanatic, husband, father, recovering worrywart, conflicted Catholic, pastry hound and incurable smartass. He has lived in Charlotte since 1976, was editor of Creative Loafing in Charlotte from 1988 until 2005, and has been a featured columnist for the newspaper since then. During his tenure at CL, the newspaper won more than 40 state, regional and national journalism awards. Grooms is the “tragicomic product” of a bilingual postwar home in a small South Carolina town, interspersed with spurts of living in Brussels, Belgium. He?s overweight, often profane, has been called a “progressive populist” among other, worse names, and on most days would rather be at the beach.”

See you there!
