Brandy Blanton, an at-large Franklin alderman and founder of Southern Exposure Magazine, will be signing copies of her new book, “LEGACY: The Stories of Williamson County 2002-2018,” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16, at Tin Cottage on Main Street in downtown Franklin.
The coffee-table book is a collection of stories from the magazine, sharing the stories of local businesses, political leaders, history, musicians, cuisine and more.
“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,” Marianne DeMeyers, owner of Tin Cottage, 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 past 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.
Tin Cottage is at 334 Main Street in downtown Franklin.
