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.
