Pat Summitt in Nashville Friday to promote book

Posted: Updated:

Former University of Tennessee women's coach Pat Summitt is in Nashville on Friday to sign her new memoir, Sum It Up.

The all-time winningest college basketball coach will be at Parnassus Books in Green Hills from noon to 1:30 p.m.

The bookstore said if you pre-purchase a copy of the book on the Parnassus website or in-store, attendees will receive a signing line group assignment.  This will serve as their ticket to the event.

After meeting Summitt, each ticket holder will receive a signed copy of the book.

Books will be available for purchase on the day of the event, but space is limited.  Fans are encouraged to reserve their books in advance to guarantee entrance to the event.

The book details the coach's childhood to her record-breaking career to her recent diagnosis with Alzheimer's-type dementia at age 59.

She is the first coach in NCAA history to reach 1,000 wins.
