Press Release for Immediate Release

April 30, 2014

Hawkins, TX – I am pleased to announce that the city of choice for our Annual Pulpwood Queen Book Club Convention, which we call Girlfriend Weekend, will be Nacogdoches, Texas!  The largest “meeting and discussing” book club began in East Texas so we are staying for our 15th Anniversary in the part of the state that brought us to this book loving party!

For the past 14 years, I have held our annual convention for my Pulpwood Queen Book Club Convention, Girlfriend Weekend, predominantly in Jefferson, once in Marshall, Texas.  Since I have moved my Beauty and the Book to Hawkins, Texas, it was time for a change.  I have been accepting proposals for a new venue and I am now proud to announce that the City of Nacogdoches, Texas made us an offer that we just could not refuse.  The City of Nacogdoches and my Pulpwood Queens will be partnering to make this the biggest Pulpwood Queen Girlfriend Weekend ever!


January 15 – 18, 2015 will be the date for Girlfriend Weekend, always held annually on Martin Luther King Weekend.  Our theme for this coming year’s event is AROUND THE WORLD WITH BOOKS since we are an international book club with 550+ chapters nationwide and in 15 foreign countries.


My co-host for the weekend will be New York Times Bestselling Author, JAMIE FORD!  The authors are already lining up and as always, they are our Official Book Club Selection Authors. We will feature 50+ authors with an Author Dinner, (the authors wait your tables) two days of panels, and two nights of activities and entertainment including our Grand Finale, THE GREAT BIG BALL OF HAIR BALL. Registration is up online to purchase NOW, $150 for members for the weekend, $50 for the dinner, $200 for both.  On non-members, make it $250 for weekend, $50 for dinner, $300 for both. at
