WAPT reports Governor Palin's participation in a Christian women's event this coming weekend.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is speaking at a Christian women's gathering this weekend in Mississippi.
The speech by the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee is set for 3 p.m. Saturday. It's part of the Extraordinary Women Conference at the BancorpSouth Arena in Tupelo.
Michael Stewart, the conference's vice president for event development, told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that Tupelo is one of only four stops on the Extraordinary Women tour at which Palin will speak.
He said organizers "looked for markets where her appearance demographically made sense." Stewart said the presence of the Tupelo-based American Family Association is among the reasons Palin chose to speak in the city.
