Carole Townsend's latest book titled "Red Lipstick and Clean Underwear" released October has been given great reviews from Vikki Locke, Suwanee Magazine, Atlanta Journal and Constitution and Patch news
Author, columnist and humorist Carole Townsend will be holding a book signing for her second book, "Red Lipstick and Clean Underwear," on November 17, 2012 at Books For Less in Alpharetta GA. at 935 North Point Dr. Alpharetta Ga. 30022 from 12:00pm - 3:00pm. The book, which is anchored in dozens of face-to-face interviews between Townsend and women from across the U.S., takes an openly honest, bluntly humorous and cuttingly poignant look at the advice women were handed as young women from their mothers, grandmother, aunts and family friends. Does the advice even apply in the lives of real women in a very different world than our mothers understood? The answers are found in the pages of the book, along with some questions and ideas for readers to mull about the complicated life of a woman. "Red Lipstick and Clean Underwear" is already being lauded as a great book club find, opening up "honest and fun" discussions about "women, where we've been, where we are now and where we're headed." (Tana Suggs, Editor, Suwanee Magazine in GA). "Love the book! It brought back so many mother/daughter memories. Red Lipstick and Clean Underwear had us laughing, reminiscing and reveling in our womanhood." (Vikki Locke, Host, B985 morning radio show Atlanta, GA.)
Sharon Swanepoel, one of the early reviewers of the book and editor of two Patch News Sites in Georgia said, "(The book) started off as a light look at the advice women received from their own mothers - hence the title Red Lipstick and Clean Underwear. We all remember that advice, right? But that's not quite how it ended up. Instead, it's more of a celebration of women, how they've survived - sometimes despite the advice they received from their mothers."
"Red Lipstick and Clean Underwear," written in the honest, funny style for which Townsend has become well known, officially released Oct. 15, 2012. The book is available on Amazon, through Barnes and Noble's website, in independent book stores and through the website www.lipstickandundies.com. Townsend's scheduled appearances and signings are also listed on that website and www.caroletownsend.com.
