Join King’s Books in welcoming Katie Haegele to talk about Cats I’ve Known: On Love, Loss, and Being Graciously Ignored, a collection of deeply heartfelt, humorous, and insightful stories of cats. From deep friendships to brief encounters, this is the story of the cats in Katie Haegele’s life, or rather the story of her life in relation to the many cats she meets in Philadelphia’s streets, alleys, houses, apartments, and bookstores. Through Haegele’s sharp, wise, and at times hilarious gaze, we see cats for what they truly are: minor deities that mostly ignore the human foibles being played out around them. They accept our offerings with equanimity and occasionally bestow some nice thing on us.

Katie Haegele is a writer, zine maker, and book critic who lives in Philadelphia. She is the author of the memoir White Elephants, and the essay collection Slip of the Tongue: Talking About Language. Her written works have been published in UtneBitchAdbustersThe Comics JournalPhiladelphia MagazineThe Believer Logger, and elsewhere.
