Slim's birthday was today, well as her Christmas dance performance. While we were at the dance we ran into the writer/local celeb Jill Connor Browne. Boss Queen Jill Conner Browne founded the Sweet Potato Queens in the early 1980s. After passing through a patch of the doldrums, she found herself in need of some excitement, and a new direction. Jill Conner Browne discovered that she lived near Vardaman, Mississippi, self-proclaimed Sweet Potato Capital of the World, and inspiration struck. She volunteered to be the queen for the farmers' annual festival. Although the crowning never materialized, the prospect of being the queen of anything was too good to pass up; so, in 1982 Jill Conner Browne entered herself and a few similarly inspired friends in Jackson, Mississippi's, St. Patrick's Day Parade (now the 4th largest in the country). The four original Queens all wore green, hand-me-down, ball gowns and tiaras, and waved to the crowd from the bed of an old pickup truck. It was modest, but it was a start. The Queenly costume has undergone several upgrades since then, and now consists of a sparkly size-24 green-sequined mini-dress (stuffed to its voluptuous forty-pound carrying weight), flowing red wigs, Revlon's® Love That Pink lipstick, and real-life majorette boots. Jill Conner Browne is America's #1 Humor Writer, according to Nielsen BookScan, a retail book sales monitoring service. There are more than 2.2 million copies of The Sweet Potato Queen's books currently in print, not including Jill Conner Browne's seventh, The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit, which was released 1 January 2008, by Simon & Schuster; her sixth book and first work of fiction, The Sweet Potato Queens' 1st Big-Ass Novel: Stuff we didn't actually do, but could have and may yet (Simon & Schuster, 2007), went on sale to critical acclaim; her fifth book, a New York Times® bestseller, The Sweet Potato Queens' Wedding Planner and Divorce Guide, (Crown Publishers, 2005) is an ingenious hardcover flip-book; the #1 New York Times® bestseller, The Sweet Potato Queens' Field Guide to Men: Every Man I Love is Either Married, Gay, or Dead (Three Rivers Press, 2004); the #1 New York Times® bestseller, The Sweet Potato Queens' Big-Ass Cookbook (and Financial Planner) (Three Rivers Press, 2003); and, the national bestsellers: God Save the Sweet Potato Queens (Three Rivers Press, 2001), and The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love (Three Rivers Press, 1999), the book that started it all, which has been translated into German and Japanese.
