For all of you women readers from the South (that would be two-- my mom and my sister), you've got to check out this book-- SWAG: Southern Women Aging Gracefully by Melinda Rainey Thompson. It was given to me to pass along to some members of our Steel Magnolias cast for "research purposes," but I had to read it first. It is hilarious! If you are a woman from the South (or wish you were), check it out!
I've already ordered a copy for myself and a copy of the sequel.
