Elliott Brack has been a newspaperman in Gwinnett County for 46 years, and now he is the editor and publisher of the Gwinnett Forum and an award-winning historian and author.
He will talk about the history of Gwinnett County and his book Gwinnett: A Little Above Atlanta. From the time is was founded in 1818, until after World War II, Gwinnett County residents were engaged primarily in farming and not much affected by the outside world. After 1950, Gwinnett's proximity to Atlanta changed all that thanks to the accessibility of automobiles, the interstate highway system, and Hartsfield Jackson airport. His book primarily covers the county's growth spurt since 1950. The book is available at Liberty Books on the Historic Courthouse Square in Lawrenceville.
