First Lady To Read Book About Wilma Rudolph

CREATED Feb 19, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - First lady Crissy Haslam is using her book club to pay tribute to Olympic legend Wilma Rudolph.

As part of her Read20 Family Book Club, Haslam will read the February book of the month, "Wilma Unlimited: How Wilma Rudolph Became the World's Fastest Woman," at Tennessee State University on Wednesday.

Haslam is also hosting Girls on the Run, a youth development program for girls in third through eighth grades.

Following the program, the girls will tour TSU's athletic facilities and perform drills with the school's women's track and field team.

Haslam launched the Read20 Family Book Club about two years ago. It challenges Tennessee families to read together for at least 20 minutes each day.
