If you haven’t read the book yet, or seen the movie, it a must for every sweeper. The story chronicles the life Evelyn Ryan who was a contestor in the 50s and 60s. It was the heyday of judged contests where entrants had to complete phrases, jingles and advertising slogans in 25 words or less. Evelyn kept her family going, and even saved her home, by winning. She was lucky enough to meet a group of woman who held the same passion she did for words and prizes; The Affadaisies.
I was lucky enough to be an honorary Affadaisy and attend club meetings three times. They are all gone now, but to me those ladies were the real contest queens.
