MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Copies of a new book about remarkable Tennessee women will go to all of the state's public high schools, thanks to support from the Middle Tennessee State University History Department.
Women whose lives are chronicled in the book include aviator Evelyn Stone Bryan Johnson; state legislator Anna Belle Clement O'Brien; Brenda Runyon, who established the first bank in America owned and operated by women; and Angie Perkins, the first woman in the South to serve on a school board.
A discussion with the editors of "Tennessee Women of Vision and Courage" takes place Feb. 15 at the Linebaugh Public Library in Murfreesboro. The event is free, but proceeds from book sales will go toward supplying public high schools with the book.
