KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Ashlee Latimer’s career has taken her to the bright lights of Broadway and the stage of the Tony Awards. But her next milestone – the debut of her first children’s book – happened in her hometown of Knoxville.
Latimer, 30, is the author of “Francis Discovers Possible,” which published May 3. A 2016 University of Tennessee graduate, her Knoxville roots run deep. She graduated from Bearden High School and has acted in, produced and directed more than a dozen plays with the Knoxville Children’s Theater.
