Southern Women's Show

Agricenter International will be a southern woman's paradise on Friday, March 8 through Sunday, March 10. The Memphis Public Library and Information Center will be among the vendors on hand during the Southern Women's Show, which will feature special guests, cooking presentations, shopping, health and beauty tips, fashion, and much more.
