Cal Turner, Jr. will speak at the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, June 12 at 5:30 p.m. He will discuss his book, My Father's Business: The Small-Town Values That Built Dollar General into a Billion-Dollar Company, which will be released in May 2018. Cal Turner, Jr. is currently Chairman of the Cal Turner Family Foundation.

About the book:
Longtime Dollar General CEO Cal Turner, Jr. shares his extraordinary life as heir to the company founded by his father, Cal Turner, Sr., and his grandfather, a dirt farmer turned Depression-era entrepreneur. Cal's narrative is at its heart a father-son story, from his childhood in Scottsville, Kentucky, where business and family were one, to the triumph of reaching the Fortune 300--at the cost of risking that very father/son relationship. Cal shares how the small-town values with which he was raised helped him guide Dollar General from family enterprise to national powerhouse.
