Hendricks, a scholar on all things Hattie Caraway and a recipient of the White House Millennium Award, played the role of Caraway on AETN's "Hattie Caraway: The Silent Woman," and wrote "Senator Hattie Caraway: An Arkansas Legacy," about the first woman elected to the United States Senate. Each purchase of Hendricks' new book at Saturday's signing will be accompanied by a complimentary copy of Anne McMath's "First Ladies of Arkansas."
