Food Network star and bestselling author Ree Drummond is coming to town this week.

Drummond, known best for her blog, Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, will sign copies of her new book, “Little Ree: Best Friends Forever!”, from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, March 29 at Barnes & Noble Booksellers, 4144 N. College Ave. in Fayetteville.

Drummond’s cookbooks and children’s books combined have spent more than 130 weeks on the New York Times Bestsellers list and her cooking show on the Food Network is currently in its 18th season.

She also has an extensive line of cookware with Walmart and she and her husband recently opened The Mercantile, a retail store in Pawhuska, Oklahoma that includes a bakery, deli and general store. Last year Drummond launched The Pioneer Woman magazine, and this week she published the second book in her Little Ree picture book series.

Customers can bring in a previously purchased Ree Drummond book to the signing as long as they purchase at least one of her new books in store at the event as well. A Barnes and Noble employee will be on hand to help customers take pictures with the author.
