One of twelve children raised in a cabin in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Dolly Parton grew to become an international superstar as famous for her distinctive voice and enduring songs as her curvy figure, big hair and bubbly personality. She is the epitome of the American Dream, a whip-smart woman who lives according to her own rules, a successful businessperson and philanthropist, and a role model for the ages. How did she do it? There is much to be learned from her big heart and spirit, grit and strong work ethic.

This lively book –part biography, part words of wisdom and life lessons –highlights the very best of the her highly quotable Dollyisms, unrelenting positivity and her belief in everyone’s ability to overcome adversity, with some beauty tips and recipes thrown in. What Would Dolly Do? shows you how to tap into your inner Dolly and put wings on your own dreams.

This book is available in hardcover ($22.00).

If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books.
