WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) -

The first woman elected to serve as a U.S. Senator will come to life later this month at Williams Baptist College.

WBC’s Vaughn Lecture Series will host Dr. Nancy Hendricks as she gives her presentation on Sen. Hattie Caraway. The lectureship is slated for Tuesday, April 25, at 7 p.m. in the Manley Chapel.

Hendricks is an award-winning author whose book Senator Hattie Caraway: An Arkansas Legacy looks at the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate. In 2015, Cosmopolitan magazine named it one of the “20 Political Books Every Woman Should Read.”

Hendricks, according to a news release from WBC, holds a doctorate in education along with degrees in English and theater. Before becoming a full-time professional writer, she was the director of alumni communications at Arkansas State University where she also taught English.

The public is invited to this free event.
