The book was presented to the Library in honor of Don and Peggy Simpson, lifelong residents of Wilson County.Don Simpson served Wilson County as County Court Clerk for nine years and as County Judge/Executive (now known as County Mayor) for 20 years.Peggy Simpson retired from American General Life and Accident Insurance Company.She serves as the Coordinator of Wilson Books from Birth, the Imagination Library.The Simpsons live on a farm outside Watertown.

The Democratic Women use this project to honor current and past Democrats and add to the Wilson County Libraries selection of books.

The Wilson County Democratic Women meet the second Tuesday of the month at Ponderosa Steak House in Lebanon. For more information, contact Annette Stafford at 593-4969 or find them on Facebook.
