The Pioneer Woman Event at Powell’s

On April 19th, we had the great pleasure of introducing Ree Drummond to an overwhelming crowd of about 600 fans at Cedar Hills Crossing!

Hours before the event, a line for tickets was wrapped halfway around the store. Ree talked a bit about the surprising and phenomenal success of her blog, briefly answered questions, then signed, signed, signed copies of her new book, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl. She was tremendously gracious, sweet, and accommodating with each and every doting admirer. I honestly think almost every single person who attended stayed to meet her and get a signed copy and pose with her for a picture. Five and a half hours later the line drew to a close and the last fan left.

We sold hundreds of books, had a great time with Ree, and hundreds of fans left quite content! Check out our calendar for the many other author events coming up at Powell's. See you all soon!
