In 2020, the Pulpwood Queens—and their male counterparts, the Timber Guys—are celebrating twenty years as the world’s largest meeting-and-discussing bookclub, with over 750 local clubs internationally. The fact that many of these women also wear tiaras, leopard prints, and bright pink to their meetings gives us a peek into their exuberant love for life, which is reflected in their love for books and each other. This collection of essays by authors, book club members, and supporters of the Queens, is a love letter to the founder and director, Kathy L. Murphy, and an ode to the written word and the place that literature and reading play in all of our lives.

The Mad Tales
I knew Pi Kielty. Pi Kielty owes me money. I spent untold shillings at the Salty Dawg, where Pi Kielty drank as much ale as your money could buy, leading a band of miscreants bent on raising heck. There was always a promise of repayment, but you knew it wasn’t happening, and anyway, the prospect of heck-raising made it a worthy investment. And then he was gone. All we are left with are this collection of stories. We are reminded that life is to be lived, that family and friends are to be cherished, and that the written word is to be savored. Savor the words found on these pages. Pi Kielty gave his life for them.
A short volume of pories, stoems, and psalms by Pi Kielty.
