Those Pulpwood Queens!
If I weren't having my own Girlfriend Weekend with college friends in Atlanta, I'd be sorely tempted to figure out where Jefferson Texas is. Starting today, January 13-17, Kathy Patrick and her fellow readers and writers are gathering for the 10th Anniversary Girlfriend Weekend Author Extravaganza: "Beauty and the Book."
Among the guests- Oh, shoot, just way too many to list. Check out the website here. And if you can get to Jefferson, there might still be elbow room. But with the likes of Cassandra King, Pat Conroy and Elizabeth Berg sharing their writing tips, it's bound to be standing room only.
Kathy started her Book store/ Hair salon/ Literacy sharing a few years ago, and this weekend is now ten years old. Congratulations, Kathy and all the Pulpwood Queens. Have fun and Be Queenly.
Check out the website for the Beauty and the Book bookstore and book groups here. You might even locate a Book Group meeting near you. And I do love Kathy's signature: "Hairdresser to the Authors." You go, Girl!
