This is kinda late for me to be posting this but…TONIGHT I’m on a panel with Phoebe Gloeckner and Nicole Georges at Northeastern Illinois University, moderated by real-deal, I’m-not-making-this-up, Professional Comics Scholar, Professor Hillary Chute! This should be a great big wide-open vat of a talk. Thrills ‘n spills with nibbage to spare! Open, as it should be, to the comics-concerned public.

The Longest Shortest Time

Last month, I met with Hillary Frank of WNYC’s The Longest Shortest Time and we talked of things pregnant and butch.  http://longestshortesttime.com/2014/10/15/podcast-41-how-to-be-a-pregnant-butch/

The Longest Shortest Time is a WNYC podcast for all of you hollow-eyed ghouls who find yourselves up in the middle of the night (not by choice). I heard of it because, after my book came out with its Spiritual Midwifery-bashing chapter, a friend asked me if I’d heard Hillary Frank’s podcast about Ina May Gaskin. I hadn’t. I looked it up and was astonished. Hillary had the chutzpah and decency to actually call up Ina May Gaskin and challenge the legendary midwife-author about her promise of “ecstatic childbirth” in S.M., among other things. Of course, I had my own different bone to pick with Ina May, but I took the sneaky bomb-throwing, comic-drawing route instead. #whyimnotajournalist  http://longestshortesttime.com/2014/04/16/podcast-28-the-missing-chapter-to-ina-mays-guide/

University of Chicago CSGS Artist Salon hosts Kristen Schilt, Hillary Chute, Chase Joynt with A.K. Summers at May 1, 2014 Artist’s Talk, “Drawing Butchness with Comics.”

Windy City Times‘s Vern Hester came to my May 1 Artist’s Talk at the University of Chicago…but Vern left out his own brilliant after-the-talk suggestion that I send a copy of Pregnant Butch to Paul “Yer Havin’ My Babeh” Anka.
