Local Tony Award winner writes children’s book

KNOXVILLE, TN (WATER) – Tony Award-winning local producer Ashlee Latimer is the author of a children’s book that promotes body positivity and acceptance.

After a long career on Broadway culminating in two Tony Awards, producer Ashlee Latimer was inspired by the author of “Francis Discovers Possible,” a children’s book that promotes loving and accepting who you are. Having very little representation growing up can lead to feelings of isolation in children and Ashlee has taken it upon herself to show that we all come in different shapes and sizes and that’s what makes us special.

Last night Ashlee hosted a reading and book signing at Union Ave Books, a local bookstore that takes great pride in supporting local authors and promoting their works. Although this event has passed, Union Ave Books hosts free events throughout the year that allow the community to meet local authors.
