“I read once that Andy Warhol, when asked which punk musicians he liked, answered, ‘I like them all.’ That’s how I am with fairy tales—-punk music too.” Just a little snippet from a new interview with Kate in Time Out New York. You can read the whole interview here.
Since October tens of thousands of unaccompanied children have been taken into custody at the U. S. Mexican border. Kate was honored to be asked by NPR’s All Things Considered to recommend a book that might help us reflect on the lives of those children. You can read her essay and listen to her commentary about Maria Tatar’s The Grimm Reader here.
On August 4, 2014, Kate will be reading from How a Mother Weaned Her Girl from Fairy Tales for the Books Beneath the Bridge Series in Brooklyn, New York. This event is co-sponsored by the Brooklyn Parks Conservancy and WORD Bookstore. In related news, Kate’s collection was just named one of the Books of the Week by WORD and Largehearted Boy!
