SOKC to host children’s author Katy Kelly


Katy KellyThe Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library welcomes children’s author Katy Kelly for a visit and book signing at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, in Rooms A and B of the library, 2201 SW 134th St.

Kelly is the author of the “Melonhead” series of children’s books. The program will begin at 2 p.m. with Kelly speaking about her work starting about 2:30 p.m.

Kelly’s “Melonhead” and “Lucy Rose” series are based near the Capitol in Washington, D.C., where she herself grew up and still lives.


“Melonhead” is based on the author’s real-life brother, and his life is filled with antics that lead to disasters in his wake. As the author describes Melonhead on her website, “I start out with a small idea and think of ways to make it worse.” 

In addition to writing children’s books, Kelly previously has worked as a feature writer for USA Today and an editor as U.S. News magazine.

The author will have copies of some of her books available for purchase for cash only at the event.

Registration is not required to attend.

For more information, call the library at 979-2200.
