If the phrase "Pulpwood Queens Book Club"
is news to you, be informed that it's a runaway sawmill of East Texas (and now world wide) women who read books and talk. One of my Jefferson-native mother's book recommendations was Hershey's "Hiroshima." Apparently the women folks there read with a voracious criticism, and speak up in public about it. Seems it all got started in a beauty parlor; wouldn't you know it. And you though "Steel Magnolias" was the highpoint of that cultural nexus!
