An integral member of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and Junkhouse, Tom Wilson joins Wordfest and Allison Brock of CKUA Radio for an intimate conversation.

Raised in the rough-and-tumble world of Hamilton in the company of World War II vets, factory workers, fall-guy wrestlers, and deeply guarded secrets kept by his parents, Wilson carved out a life for himself in shadows. From building an international music career to battling his demons and addition, Wilson presents his memoir, Beautiful Scars, with unflinching honesty and extraordinary compassion about his search for the truth. The evening includes an audience Q&A and book signing.

Wordfest presents Tom Wilson at 7:00pm on December 6, 2017 at the Engagement Lab, Memorial Park Library (2nd Floor, 1221 2nd St. SW).
