Today's breaking news: flamboyant comedian, actress, screenwriter, and author, FANNIE FLAGG, has just been confirmed by Random House Publishers to be one of our Keynote Speakers during Girlfriend Weekend 2011!

Last year we SOLD OUT on all events and this year I am letting you know that for OFFICIAL Pulpwood Queens and Timber Guys Book Club members, the Early Bird Special is NOW in effect!

This price includes: Official 11th Anniversary Girlfriend Weekend t-shirt, V.I.P. badge for ALL Friday and Saturday author panels and for BOTH Friday and Saturday night entertainment including our Grand Finale, our Great Big Ball of Hair Ball! This year's 11th Anniversary theme is "Tiara Wearing and Story Sharing", you see it's all about the story. So the costumes for the ball must be favorite book character, author, or perhaps for the Girl Group Competition you could All come as the characters for the book!

This year we also will be receiving some amazing complimentary galleys and I already have confirmed some pretty amazing authors returning and some brand spanking NEW ones that you won't want to miss! We are also adding a Pulpwood Queen V.I.P. room for Head Queens and Authors only so those running our chapters will get even more upclose and personal time with the authors with refreshments and treats too!
