Tucker Mitchell is an award-winning writer who spent more than thirty years in the newspaper business as reporter, writer, columnist, editor, publisher and owner. He’s a graduate of Wake Forest University, where he somehow managed to obtain a degree in History, which is sort of a long, slow form of journalism. Tucker is married to Cindy. They have two grown children, and two grandchildren. This is Tucker’s second book. His first work, the critically unacclaimed HORNETS NEVER LIE, was published in 1989.
Peahead-inspired ruminations on football, life, lockerroom “banter” and more.
Peahead! was published as a project of Wake Forest Digital Press and Library Partners Press.
