Proud of East Texas; Kathy Patrick

By Joan Hallmark

"Beauty And The Book," the first combination beauty shop/book store in the country, has got to be one of the most colorful places around. Located in the historic town of Jefferson, the store is the headquarters of Kathy Patrick, founder of the Pulpwood Queens of East Texas.

When Patrick lost her jobs he combined her two passions, beauty and books, and before long was being interviewed on Oprah and Good Morning America. She annually features authors and their books and has launched a number of rising stars in the business. Patricks "Pulpwood Queens Book Club", which celebrates women and books, now has chapters throughout the world.
