Won't be making the book signing. Ree Drummond is currently embroiled in a plagiarism scandal stemming from a Valentine's Day post that copied an Etsy artist's work. Drummond deleted the offending post but never publicly apologized to her readers and simply covered up the incident. Also, her recipes are lifted from church and community cookbooks and rarely does Drummond credit her sources. The Marlboro Woman blog has more details on all this.
