Meet our readers – Kate Harding

Have you met Kate Harding?  Because you really, really should, she’s the bomb.

Kate Harding is the author of Asking for It, a book on rape culture coming out next fall, and co-author of Lessons from the Fat-o-Sphere, an anti-dieting manual. She founded the body acceptance blog Shapely Prose, was a regular contributor to’s now-defunct ladyblog, Broadsheet, and has written about women’s issues, politics, television, and her dogs for numerous other outlets. Locally, she’s read at The Encyclopedia Show, Funny Ha-Ha, and The Sunday Night Sex Show, although she was nearly booed off the stage at that one for being comparatively prudish. She lives in Rogers Park with her husband, a corgi/pug mix, and a toothless old chihuahua who hates everything.

Come see how fabulous Kate is with your very own eyes on February 10th at Swim Cafe, 1357 W. Chicago Avenue.  Doors open at 7:30.
