Booklovers Bash

Multiple #1 New York Times® Bestselling Author, Jill Conner Browne, THE Sweet Potato Queen™, has created a global phenomenon—over 6,400 chapter groups in 37 countries—based upon her philosophy and world-view as recounted through her rollicking, raucous, and riotously funny essays. Women and smart men understand that the bawdy, sassy, down-to-earth humor is simply the vehicle by which the greater message is conveyed—that is, one of self-reliance and empowerment, inspiring all to do what makes their hearts sing.

The notorious, one-of-a-kind, inimitable, glorious, and original sweet potato royal is bringing her Southern wit, charm, and hilarity to Cheyenne, Wyoming for Laramie County Library Foundation’s annual Booklovers Bash!

Queen Jill Conner Browne’s talk will be accompanied by dinner, silent auction, live auction, and a dessert dash that is as infamous as THE Sweet Potato Queen™ herself! Supporting Laramie County Library Foundation has never been so fun, hilarious, or sweet (potato, that is), so purchase tickets today!
