These are the personalities in Georgiana Vines’ book, “East Tennessee Newsmakers: Where Are They Now?”, a collection of 47 stories originally appearing in the Knoxville News Sentinel and updated. The book was published by the University of Tennessee Press in November 2019 and was just getting introduced in the community when COVID hit and book appearances stopped. Now she’s back to talking about it again.
