November 01, 2011

Mary Kay Andrews, New York Times bestselling author, will be speaking to the Bristol community as part of the Bristol Public Library’s 2011 Discovery Series on Saturday, November 5th at 1:30 p.m. Ms. Andrews is a former journalist who spent 10 years as a feature writer for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. In addition to being a writer, she is a lifelong, self-proclaimed “junker” who knows the location of every promising thrift store, flea market, and junk pile in the Southeastern United States, plus many parts of Ohio. Mary Kay Andrews is the author of the New York Times bestselling The Fixer Upper, Savannah Breeze and Blue Christmas, as well as Deep Dish, Hissy Fit, Little Bitty Lies, Savannah Blues and Summer Rental. She has also written the Callahan Mystery Series, under her real name, Kathy Hogan Trocheck. “Mary Kay Andrews is a combination of my children’s names—Mary Kay for my daughter Mary Kathleen, and Andrew, for my son, Andy,” says Andrews of her pseudonym used to write her books.
