The proprietor of what may well be the only bookstore/beauty parlor in the country, Kathy Patrick, has become a well-known figure in Jefferson, Tex., not only for her unusual store but for the highly successful book group, the Pulpwood Queens, she runs from it and for the many notable author events the store has organized. She has drawn national attention for all these doings, including TV appearances on Good Morning America, and since she is also a dedicated book person (she used to be a book sales rep), it was perhaps inevitable that she would eventually give birth to one. Agent Marly Rusoff just sold her offspring to Warner's Amy Einhorn for U.S., Canadian and open market rights. Patrick will describe how following her dream—in her case, the love of books—changed her life, and will suggest how other women can do likewise.
