Proud Of East Texas: Kathy Patrick

When Kathy Patrick lost her dream job as a publishers rep, due to independent bookstore cutbacks, she took her experience as a hairdresser and her love of books and opened "Beauty And The Book" in Jefferson.  This combination beauty shop/book store was the first of its kind in the nation, and soon Patrick was besieged by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Good Morning America and top publishers.

Patrick also took her sense of fun and vivid imagination and formed "The Pulpwood Queens," the largest reading and discussing book club in the world.  Club members are known for their colorful costumes of tiaras, hot pink and leopard skin.  Patrick's just published book "The Pulpwood Queen's TIiara Wearing Book Sharing Guide To Life" has garnered critical acclaim.  The book not only tells Patrick's story, but also includes how to start a book club, lists of good books and favorite recipes.  Patrick will be in Tyler promoting her book Friday, February 1st at 7:00 p.m. at Barnes & Noble located on South Broadway.

And that's fair considering they have won three state titles and racked up 13 double digit win seasons since 2000. But a small 1A school about nine miles away deserves some attention these days as well.
