Local publisher and author Brandy Blanton, founder of Southern Exposure Magazine, will be signing copies of her new book, “LEGACY: The Stories of Williamson County 2002-2018,” on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 11 a to 3 p at Tin Cottage on Main Street in downtown Franklin.
The coffee-table book highlights all aspects of what makes the Williamson County community so unique, sharing the stories of its local businesses, political leaders, history, musicians, cuisine and more.
Marianne DeMeyers, owner of Tin Cottage, says the local shop is thrilled to welcome Blanton and host this signing event.
“Brandy has been a vital figure in our community for decades, and we want to urge everyone to come out and meet her as we celebrate the launch of this amazing book,” DeMeyers said. “Franklin is near and dear to my heart, and Brandy has captured its spirit beautifully in these pages.”
Featuring stories by talented contributing authors and photographers, the book gives readers a glimpse into the people and places that have made Williamson County stand out over the last 16 years.
“It is such a blessing to partner with Marianne on this event,” Blanton said. “She and I met in Southern Exposure Magazine’s infancy, and she has been a friend and supporter ever since. She has a huge heart for Franklin, and she serves our community way beyond the brick and mortar of Tin Cottage.”
“Legacy,” which sells for $49.99, is currently available for purchase at Tin Cottage and will continue to be sold in-store after the book signing. Blanton now serves as director of development for High Hopes Development Center, and a portion of book sales will be donated to the organization.
