Ya gotta love extroverts. Those amazing people that God gifts with the ability to light up a room with their energy and passion. I don’t personally know Kathy L. Patrick, but I imagine her to be one of those folks. Kathy is the founder of The Pulpwood Queens. She owns the world’s first Hair Salon/Bookstore. A great combination if you ask me.
From Kathy’s web site: My life is about to be an open book. Yes, coming soon to a bookstore near you is my story 'The Pulpwood Queens' Tiara Wearing, Book Sharing Guide to Life' to be published by Hachette Book Group USA formerly known as Time/Warner Book Group. This is my story on how books saved me, the story of Beauty and the Book, and the Pulpwood Queens, and why I am on a mission to get the world reading. My book will also be a resource book for readers and book clubs. It is kind of a one stop shop for readers. For you, it will give you all you would ever want to know about The Pulpwood Queen!
Kathy has organized the first ever BOOKS ALIVE!, a celebration of Christian and Inspirational literature and music to be held at The First United Methodist Church in Jefferson, Texas. This event which will be held annually is sponsored by Beauty and the Book and The Pulpwood Queens, and will be a fundraiser for The First United Methodist Church mission and outreach programs. FUMC is the church that was instrumental in coordinating the relief efforts for displaced families of Hurricane Katrina and Rita and continues to do so. All proceeds and profits will go to supporting the mission and ministry of The First United Methodist Church of Jefferson, Texas.
I’m excited to share with y’all that I have been invited to join Kathy and a host of authors for this special BOOKS ALIVE! event to be held November 3-5, 2006 in Jefferson, Texas. Visit the web site to find out more. If you’re in the area please come out and say hello!
Stay tuned for more information on this upcoming event and more info on the Tiara Wearing Queen in future God Allows U-Turns BLOGS. I hope you’ll find this woman and her mission to be as fascinating as I do!
And that’s what’s on my mind today,
