The humor of legendary actress Mae West is recognized for its acerbic nature, and she is known for her outrageous behavior. She has a wonderful, telling quote that I have to share with you on the eve of the 2009 State Librarian’s Luncheon.
“I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number of carats in a diamond.” ~Mae West
So, look forward to the carats, forget about your diet, and plan on picking up some new bling at the luncheon, scheduled for noon on Thursday, April 2, at the Kansas Library Conference. State Librarian Christie Brandau will emcee the event.
Kathy Patrick, author of The Pulpwood Queens’ Tiara Wearing, Book Sharing Guide to Life, will be our guest speaker. She is a native Kansan, hairdresser, and book marketer-turned-bookstore-owner. Patrick grew up in Eureka, attended Kansas State University, and graduated from Crum’s Beauty School in Manhattan.
The program also will include an update on the State Library’s programs, an opportunity to enter drawings for donated jewelry and other door prizes, and of course, a wonderful lunch. (Do you enjoy beading as a hobby? Please consider donating a piece for the cause! Contact email@example.com) Funds raised during the event will underwrite future Kansas Center for the Book projects.
Mark your calendar now to attend the State Librarian’s Luncheon, Thursday, April 2, 11:50 a.m., at the Hyatt in Wichita.
