Tennessee State University Faculty Member Releases New Book, Celebrates With Book Signing & Launch Party

Tennessee State University communications professor Dr. Veronica J. Glass will host a book release celebration for the Nashville community at the Spoken Word CafĂ© on Tuesday, April 20 at 6 p.m. to meet fans of her latest project, Use Your Buckets: Twelve Life Lessons for Success.
Use Your Buckets is a self-help book that doles out lessons Glass learned growing up in a three-room Kentucky house with no indoor plumbing. She encourages and motivates readers to strive for success with simple yet relatable life examples. The quick read reveals insightful, life-changing truths Glass has discovered in her life.
“This book is a product of lessons learned from the time that I was child growing up in little Russellville, Kentucky. Our house was full of buckets. We had to use buckets for everything from storing flour, meal and sugar to carrying water, wood and coal – even for using the bathroom. These things taught me some invaluable life lessons that I want to share with others,” Glass said about penning Use Your Buckets.
“I read Dr. Veronica Glass’s book Use Your Buckets and thoroughly enjoyed it.  She really has a knack for writing, motivating and inspiring!” said David L. Tart, vice president of higher education at Kendall/Hunt Publishing.
Autographed copies of the book will be available for purchase at Tuesday’s signing event. Readers may also purchase the book online at Books and promotional materials are available on Glass’s website
