Tea with F&F.webp

Mark your calendars! Friends & Fiction is a community of more than 240,000 readers, hosted by New York Times bestselling authors Mary Kay Andrews, Kristin Harmel, Kristy Woodson Harvey and Patti Callahan Henry. Each Wednesday, Mary Kay, Kristin, Kristy and Patti welcome fellow authors to their popular weekly web show, where they discuss the story behind some of the world’s most popular books.

In March 2020, all four authors—along with founding co-host Mary Alice Monroe, who left the show in 2021—had their upcoming book tours abruptly canceled because of the pandemic shutdown. They met on a Zoom happy hour with glasses of rosé in hand to talk about how they could best reach readers and support independent bookstores while stuck at home, and the idea for Friends & Fiction was born. What started as a casual happy hour soon took off beyond their wildest expectations, with weekly Wednesday night live shows regularly reaching in excess of 10,000 viewers.
