Tennessee state historian Walter Durham will be speaking at Vol State about his 23rd book titled “Grasslands.”
Dr. Carole Bucy, professor of history, said that this will most likely be his last book published.
He is a graduate of Vanderbilt University where he received his master’s degree.
“This is a great opportunity for Vol State to recognize his contribution to Sumner County and Tenn. history,” said Bucy. “He is the most charming, gracious, and gentile man.”
This event is open to the public, and students are encouraged to attend on Tuesday December 7 at 12:00 p.m. in the Rochelle center.
