Charlotte Tillar Schexnayder discusses her new memoir "Salty Old Editor: An Adventure in Ink," which chronicles her life in journalism. She pursued the career for more than a half-century as she and her husband, Melvin Schexnayder, worked side-by-side in southeast Arkansas to build the Dumas Clarion newspaper into an influential voice in the life and politics of the Arkansas Delta.

Her work in journalism also helped prepare her for a life of public service. Always fascinated by politics, she sat on numerous state boards and served for 14 years in the Arkansas House of Representatives. This lecture is hosted in partnership with the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, publisher of “Salty Old Editor.”
