Local columnist proves ‘she’s a keeper’ with new book


Author Lee St. John shows off a handmade fan to the crowd that was created by an admirer. St. John unveiled her new book, “She’s A Keeper!” on Tuesday at the Coweta Central Library.

Lee St. John shared her deepest, darkest secrets with dozens of people as she revealed her new book during a release party at the Coweta Central Library.

The manuscript, titled, “She’s A Keeper! Cockamamie Memoirs from a Hot Southern Mess,” provides intimate and humorous details on St. John’s misadventures growing up and raising a family in the deep South.

St. John is also a columnist for The Newnan Times-Herald and shares similar stories with the community.  

She said that while the book is comical, it began as a memoir for her two sons, Lee, 32, and John, 24.

The author also admitted the two men provided her a pseudonym to use when she dishes on the family gossip.  

St. John said “She’s A Keeper” is now available online.
