Did you know that the largest book club in the world is based out of this fine town of Jefferson, Texas? It is true! The Pulpwood Queen’s Book Club is the brainchild of Kathy L. Patrick owner of the Beauty and the Book Salon located only two blocks from The Carriage House Bed and Breakfast.
When Kathy, a licensed cosmetologist turned publisher’s rep, lost her job due to industry cutbacks, she wasn’t deterred by this setback. Only a few months later, she opened Beauty and the Book, the world’s only combination beauty salon/bookstore. An instant hit with customers, who flocked to the store for her dual beauty/book tips, Kathy soon founded The Pulpwood Queens of East Texas. The group meets monthly in official Pulpwood Queens attire—anything that includes hot pink, leopard print, and the obligatory tiara—to eat, drink, and talk books.
The Pulpwood Queens motto is “where tiaras are mandatory and reading good books is the RULE”! This group’s mission is to promote literacy and help undiscovered authors get discovered in a great big way. The Pulpwood Queens now have clubs in over eight countries with 200+ chapters globally.
These fine ladies will be having their annual conference here in Jefferson from January 13th through the 17th. The schedule for this conference can be found on the club’s website by clicking here.
We still have a few rooms available for this conference. You may go to our website to make your reservation online or call us at (903) 665-9511.
