PERIOD updates: news release and audiobook info!

I’m very excited to share two pieces of news this week:

  • Diana Yates at the University of Illinois has written a great press release for my book – please note that there is contact info for me and for various folks at the press who can get advance copies to reporters as needed!
  • LibroFM has selected PERIOD for their March influencer campaign! I hope you’ll consider buying the audiobook through LibroFM since it’s like Bookshop for audiobooks – they make it possible to support local indie bookstores.

The big cover reveal!

Woo hoo, I finally get to share the gorgeous cover of my book Period: The Real Story of Menstruation!

Blue background with book cover of Period: The Real Story of Menstruation by Kate Clancy. Cover is light blue with title toward bottom with a red teardrop in place of O with subtitle inside.

This book was both a joy and a real pain in the butt to write. It’s chock full of delight and curiosity, but also a lot of righteous anger. Period tells the story of a misunderstood and stigmatized process that is crucial to our understanding of human biology, reproduction, and variable ways of being. I also share the misogynist and racist origin story for the Western misconception of periods (spoiler alert: it’s eugenics all the way down), and what a just future that includes menstruating bodies might look like.

Pre-order here today!
