The Frankfort Community Public Library is hosting the first Clinton County Women’s Expo. The Expo will be held Saturday, March 4 from 10 a.m.– 4 p.m. and is funded in part by a grant from the Lincoln Federal Community Fund, a fund of the Clinton County Community Foundation. March is Women’s History Month. The Expo will be a celebration of women and women-owned businesses. This should be an empowering experience for girls, women, and aspiring entrepreneurs. The Frankfort Library has invited women-owned businesses from Clinton County and surrounding areas to attend the Expo. Each business will have a booth where they will sell their product. Attendees are encouraged to engage with business owners and ask any questions they might have. “How did you get started? How has your business model changed over the course of your career? What advice would you give your past self when you were just starting out?” More than 25 businesses have agreed to be a part of the Clinton County Women’s Expo, along with two speakers and two artists. The opening speaker will be author Sarah Gerkensmeyer. She is a Pushcart Prize nominee and a finalist for the Katherine Anne Porter Prize for Short Fiction. She received her MFA in Fiction from Cornell University. She is the author of the book What You are Now Enjoying. Gerkensmeyer will speak about following your gut and how to both trust and chase your aspirations. There will be a financial literacy workshop, “Royal Money Saving Tips for Busy Moms” led by Cherie W. Lowe, author of Slaying the Debt Dragon. Lowe will teach attendees ways to save money and share helpful pointers on how to get out of debt. Two female artists will have their work displayed in the Anna and Harlan Hubbard Gallery during the month of March: Barbara Timm, and Eileen Emison Booth. Timm is a former Art Professor at DePauw University, and Booth is a graduate of DePauw University and New York University.
