Popular Author Mary Kay Andrews to Speak and Sign Books at

Mary Kay Andrews, author of such best-selling comic, romantic novels as “Hissy Fit” and “Savannah Blues,” as well as more than a dozen popular mystery novels under her real-life name, Kathy Hogan Trocheck, will visit the Fayette County Public Library on Saturday, April 19 at 1:00 p.m. She will give a brief talk, after which the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions. The author will sign copies of her new book, “Deep Dish,” which will be on sale at the event. “Deep Dish” tells the story of two feuding television chefs, and the audience will be treated to complimentary refreshments that echo some of the concoctions described in the book.

A long-time metro Atlanta resident, former Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Kathy Hogan Trocheck found success throughout the 1990s penning a series of humorous mystery novels starring Callahan Garrity, the ex-Atlanta-cop housecleaner. With the arrival of the new millennium, Trocheck changed genres and adopted the pen name Mary Kay Andrews. Filled with the shenanigans inherent in relations between the sexes, and featuring feisty contemporary Southern women, Andrews’s books have found a whole new audience.

The event is free and open to the public, and sponsored by the Fayette County Public Library and the Friends of the Fayette County Public Library.

The Fayette County Public Library is located behind the Fayette County administrative complex in downtown Fayetteville, at the southwest corner of Highways #85 and #54. For additional information, please contact the library at 770-461-8841.
