Starting with the eight-dollar purchase of a frivolous red fedora at a thrift shop, the author has spawned a network of women who meet wearing red hats and outrageous purple dresses to celebrate their age and have fun. With over 300 groups meeting locally, traveling together, and now meeting nationally, the main idea is to care for others by promoting laughter, keeping structure to a minimum, and appreciating the marvelous possibilities that women in this age group have. The author's clubby sincerity and her charming story are so infectious that in a short time most listeners will forget about her flat reading style. T.W. © AudioFile 2006
Believing that a woman's fiftieth birthday should be a time for celebration, not a milestone to be feared, Sue Ellen Cooper started giving a red hat to all her friends approaching the big five-oh. This soon became her signature gift. When she and her friends went to tea in full regalia (wearing a red hat and purple is a must), the first chapter of the Red Hat Society was born. In just three years, the concept spread like wildfire: There are now over three hundred thousand Red Hatters across the U.S.A., Canada, and even around the world...all forging new friendships, deepening old ones, and, most important, having fun.
