Cats I’ve Known: A reading and book signing

November 11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Writer Katie Haegele will be at King’s Books to read from and sign copies of her book, Cats I’ve Known (Microcosm Publishing).

About the Book: 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. Haegele, author of White Elephants and Slip of the Tongue, has a unique and compelling sensibility, and it’s a treat to see the world through her eyes as she shows us all the meanness, weirdness, and vulnerability of humans, against an ever-shifting backdrop of the cats we often take for granted, and who ignore us all democratically in return.
