Marjorie Hudson’s writing has won many honors, including a 2012 Pen/Hemingway Honorable Mention, a 2012 North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship, a Blumenthal Award, and two Pushcart Special Mentions. The stories in her story collection Accidental Birds of the Carolinas (Press 53, 2011) (“like novels in nutshells, Alice Munro style,” — Doris Betts) explore the themes of love, loss, and connection among natives and newcomers in the South. Born in rural Illinois, Hudson grew up in Washington, D.C., and now lives in North Carolina. Her previous book, Searching for Virginia Dare: On the Trail of the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island, currently available in a new edition (Press 53, 2013) (“fascinating as a detective story” – Lee Smith) is an intertwined tale of obsession, loss, and hope that explores the fate of America’s first English child, born on an island wilderness off the coast of North Carolina.
