[FBC18] Caitlin Kunkel, Brooke Preston, and Fiona Taylor, authors of New Erotica for Feminists

“We hit on this nerve that it would be erotic for women to just be treated in a safe, human way.” – Brooke Preston

Caitlin Kunkel, Brooke Preston, Fiona Taylor, and Carrie Wittmer are comedy writers and satirists whose work has been featured in the New Yorker, McSweeney’s, and many other outlets. Together, they cofounded and edit the website The Belladonna, which responds to today’s culture, news, and politics with comedy and satire written by women writers by all definitions. The Belladonna has been called “the New Onion” by Vulture and the editors some of the “gatekeepers of American humor” by The Writer Magazine.

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
