Sweet Potato Queen To Serve It Up In Jonesboro

January 9, 2004 - Posted at 10:18 a.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - New York Times best-selling author Jill Conner Browne will be in Jonesboro as part of a "Valentine's Day treat" on February 14.

A former freelance columnist and personal trainer, Browne has penned three best-selling books including 'The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love' and is working on her fourth and fifth books.  The Jackson, Mississippi native will travel to Jonesboro to provide fiery wit and fun to benefit the Women's HeartAdvantage program at St. Bernards Medical Center. 

Members of more than 3,200 Sweet Potato Queen chapters in 14 countries subscribe to Browne's unique, sometimes cynical, always humorous philosophies on life, love, marriage and making the most of your moments.  Their signature big wigs, dark glasses, strategically placed padding, sparkling dresses and even tiaras, are becoming commonplace among cities around the South and beyond.

Tickets for the event are $50 with proceeds benefitting the Women's HeartAdvantage program at St. Bernards to provide screenings and education about heart disease in women.  The event will take place at the ASU Convocation Center, where doors will open at 10:30 a.m. with heart disease educational booths and other corporate sponsors providing information.  Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. with the keynote address at 12:15.  Tickets are available online at www.stbernardsfoundation.org, or by calling 870-932-4082.
