First Lady in Memphis to Promote Early Literacy


NASHVILLE (AP) – First lady Crissy Haslam will be in Memphis on Tuesday, March 19, to promote early literacy.

She is scheduled to attend a reading event at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital where she will also stress the importance of parental engagement.

Last summer, Haslam launched the Read20 Family Book Club, challenging Tennessee families to read together for at least 20 minutes each day.

While in Memphis, Haslam is also scheduled to attend a women's group luncheon promoting healthy babies.
