Singer/songwriter Adam Hood takes the stage at 7 p.m. Saturday (August 29) at Eddie’s Attic. Hood started performing at age 16 in his hometown of Opelika, Alabama, and his songs have been recorded by Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack and Little Big Town. Hood’s latest album, 2018’s Somewhere in Between, is a homage to growing up in the South in a blue-collar family. Tickets range from $15 to $60.
New York Times best-selling author Christina Baker Kline will take part in the Atlanta History Center’s Virtual Talk series at 7 p.m. Monday (August 31). Her latest book is The Exiles, the story of a young governess in early 19th-century London who becomes pregnant and is sent to the notorious Newgate Prison, then sentenced to a Australian penal colony. Kline will talk with Paula McLain, another New York Times best-selling author (the novels Love and Ruin and Circling the Sun). The talk is free, but guests must purchase Kline’s book via A Cappella Books beforehand in order to access the Zoom event.
