Pulpwood Queen Celebrate Front Cover SMA

In 2020, the Pulpwood Queens—and their male counterparts, the Timber Guys—are celebrating twenty years as the world’s largest meeting-and-discussing bookclub, with over 750 local clubs internationally. The fact that many of these women also wear tiaras, leopard prints, and bright pink to their meetings gives us a peek into their exuberant love for life, which is reflected in their love for books and each other. This collection of essays by authors, book club members, and supporters of the Queens, is a love letter to the founder and director, Kathy L. Murphy, and an ode to the written word and the place that literature and reading play in all of our lives.

The Pulpwood Queens is the largest meeting and discussing book club in the world with nearly 800 chapters nationwide and members in 25 foreign countries.

"The Pulpwood Queens are one of those cultural phenomena that you have to participate in to completely understand. But this book does the next best thing. Put on something pink and enjoy." 
—Jamie Ford, New York Times best-selling author of
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweets
"Part book club meeting, part costume party, part come-as-you-are, the Pulpwood Queens annual Girlfriend Weekend is an extravaganza none who’ve ever attended will forget. This 20th anniversary commemorative book is like Girlfriend Weekend itself—a warm, wise, tender celebration of friends, reading, and all the ways books bring us together." 
—Lisa Wingate, New York Times best-selling author of
Before We Were Yours
