"It is our "No Truck Food Truck" concept," said "Colonel" De Stewart. "We will be serving blackened red fish sandwich, red beans and rice with pickled pork, and rabbit jambalaya. On the spice side, right next door, we will have young author Lauren Hudson signing her second book in a trilogy and her third book overall."

Stewart said that Hudson, a recent graduate of Dixie, will be the first author his shop will feature during each art walk.

The Deception is Hudson's second novel.

The 18-year-old Dixie Heights High School grad has spent the past year getting straight A’s, acting in her high school musical production “Grease,” competing in the National Mock Trial Championship, preparing for an internship at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and getting ready to major in neuroscience at the University of Kentucky. In between homework assignments and other responsibilities, she has also been finishing her new novel, “The Deception,” which has already been named Best Young Adult Book in the San Francisco Book Festival.

“The Deception” is Hudson’s second novel, but her third book overall. At age 13, she co-authored the nonfiction “Our Best Tomorrow: Students Teaching Capitalism to America” with her father, attorney Robert Hudson. At age 17, she was named 2017 Independent Author of the Year in the Great Southwest Book Festival for “The Ascension,” which also received top honors in the Great Southeast Book Festival, the Great Northwest Book Festival, the London Book Festival and others.

“I could not accomplish what have, without my father and certain other people in my life,” Hudson said. “The purpose of the ‘Ascension’ series is to show the importance of relationships with family and friends.”

“The Deception” is scheduled for release on today and is available on
