Meet Our Readers: Kate Lechler

Lechler Headshot Spooky - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
Kate Lechler is a queer writer, editor, and educator who recently moved to Chicago from the otherworldly town of Oxford, Mississippi. They have too many hobbies, among them cooking, karaoke, and foraging for mushrooms, and will talk to you at length about bad TV or the best ways to deflesh scavenged bones. They write in a variety of genres but find themselves most at home in fantasy, partly because they are a witch who does actual magic. Their work has been published in Fireside, Podcastle, Shimmer, and the Deadlands, and they're currently revising a novella about a 19th century vampire-pirate who loves to fuck. Learn more at

Please join Kate and our other amazing readers on Tuesday, July 2, 2024 in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf. Doors open at 7pm, and the show starts at 7:30. It's free, and 21-and-over. Please RSVP on Facebook.
