Talk Info

Talk Description

Jill Conner Browne tells her amazing story of creating something from nothing by doing what made her heart sing. She is the multiple #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Sweet Potato Queens’ Book of Love and eight other Sweet Potato Queens books. The self-proclaimed Boss Queen gathered friends to participate in Jackson’s first St. Patrick’s Day parade in 1983, calling themselves the Sweet Potato Queens on a whim. Since that time, the Sweet Potato Queens phenomenon has inspired more than 6,200 chapter groups in 37 countries.
