June Meeting

I am looking forward to seeing you at our meeting next week, June 29th.

I'm sorry that Mark Childress won't be able to call in to entertain us with his stories.  He was delightful when we met him at GFW in January.

Many thanks to Tracey and Committee for planning ML Malcolm's visit, sounds great.  

Allison and committee will be planning Kathryn Casey's Visit in August.

Hope you all are enjoying your summer and reading a ton of good books!

Speaking of GFW, got an email from Kathy Patrick describing some of the events and have copied the main parts for you:

Dear Pulpwood Queens,

We also are offering a MEMOIR WORKSHOP with author, Texas Observor columnist/Editor of LONNY Magazine in New York, Robert Leleux that is going to be exceptional.  $150 for members and includes a signed copy of his NEW book, "The Living End" and lncheon that day.  Robert will be our Keynote Speaker Friday morning and our January Book Club Selection so this is a real treat that he can do this for us the Wednesday before we begin the event on Thursday night.
