NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- First lady Crissy Haslam is using her Read20 Family Book Club to commemorate Women's History Month.
Haslam is scheduled to read to about 60 fourth-grade students in the House chamber of the state Legislature on Thursday.
She will be reading Laurie Halse Anderson's Independent Dames, a book with stories about women who influenced the Revolutionary War.
Haslam will be joined by House Speaker Beth Harwell, the state's first female speaker of the House.
As first lady, Haslam is working to promote early literacy. Last summer, she launched the Read20 Family Book Club, challenging Tennessee families to read together for at least 20 minutes each day.
